About us

The Woodstock Comedy Festival is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation with a mission: Comedy for a Cause. Each year our net profits will be donated to our charity partners Polaris and Family of Woodstock for the battle against human trafficking and domestic violence. Our 4th-annual festival is another 3-day weekend event, Sept. 23 - 25, in the little town with a lot to laugh at, with everything from stand-up comedy to sketch comedy, improv to panels, films and more.

Polaris

Modern slavery is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 20.9 million people around the world. And no matter where you live, chances are it’s happening right down the street. From the girl forced into prostitution at a truck stop, to the man discovered in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will. polarisproject.org
