CukoRakko Music & Arts Festival

CukoRakko is Alabama’s best kept festy secret, held twice annually at the historic Horse Pens 40, a popular camping and climbing spot only 45 minutes from Birmingham. Towering boulders provide scenic opportunities for extracurricular adventures–and serve as the backdrop of the stage.

It’s a camping festival only, so bring your stuff. Food and retail vendors will be on site. Not to mention–cement restrooms! As well as electrical outlets at each campground. Get there early to meet as many new friends as possible!

Visit CukoRakko’s website for ticketing, schedule, maps, and more.

CukoRakko is the Creek Indian word for ceremonial ground, stomp ground, big house and dance ground.  This perfectly describes the phenomenal energy that can be felt at this historic outdoor nature park. Horse Pens 40 is a natural wonderland of unique rock formations nestled atop Chandler Mountain in the foothills of the Appalachians. Located on top of the third highest mountain in Alabama, the stone formations here are said to be among the oldest naturally exposed stones in the world, dating from 600 million to 1.3 billion years old.  This sacred ground has a vivid history.  Don’t miss this opportunity to visit this incredible natural amphitheater.
