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 second-annual festival is a three-day weekend event (Sept. 19-21) 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.

The WCF is proud to be supported by the following partners and sponsors
