Rootstock Returns on May 22

It is with much excitement that New Roots Charter School and the Grassroots Festival announce Rootstock 2022.

After a very successful first Rootstock in 2019, our efforts were thwarted in 2020 and 2021 by the pandemic but we are thrilled to be emerging from this difficult period with a return to live music and celebration of youth.

Rootstock is a youth music celebration and will be held on Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 from 11am – 8pm at the Bernie Milton Pavilion in Downtown Ithaca. 

Performer applications can be found on the Rootstock website ( and are open until April 15th to youth musicians, dancers, singers, and performers ages 13-21.

Rootstock 2022 will once again host the Youth Entrepreneurship Market (YEM) ( and will feature youth vendors who have participated in a series of entrepreneurship workshops with mentorship from local entrepreneurs to help guide the launch of their businesses into our community.
