That “magic feeling on the mountain” continues like nowhere else in the Southeast!  Come join us on May 4th-7th, 2017 as we celebrate our fourth year of spring and fall festivals.  Held at the beautiful Horse Pens 40 in Steele, Alabama, this friends and family event features 4 days of music and mixed media arts.  Enjoy yoga, rock climbing, glass blowing, blacksmithing, disc golf with a PDGA tourney, camping, hiking, kid’s activities, food and drinks, crafts 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.

CukoRakko Music & Arts Festival wants to take a moment and thank the Poarch Band of Creek Indians of Atmore, Alabama for sponsoring our friends and family event in 2017. Without their support in conjunction with many other small businesses, CukoRakko would not exist as a true boutique grassroots movement. Please like and share the Poarch Neighbors in order to recognize the good work and support they provide. Let them know what CukoRakko means to YOU!!
