SOBERSTOCK 16 March 19th-21st, 2021
Hello Soberstock fans!
The committee has met and decided in light of the current ongoing pandemic, to postpone Soberstock until our normally scheduled time in March which is now set for March 19-21, 2021. We deliberated and felt much of the appeal of Soberstock (SWED hall meetings, nightly gatherings, chow time!) were not going to be enjoyed in the traditional manner due to covid. This is not a decision we made lightly but want to keep everyone's personal safety as priority.
If you purchased tickets for 2020, your tickets will automatically apply for the 2021 event. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we all try to navigate this situation. Be safe and we look forward to coming back together in 2021 and celebrating sobriety safely!

The committee is happy to announce that we have set a new date for Soberstock 16. The show must go on! Mark your calendars for October 9th-11th, 2020! We hope the situation with the Coronavirus and social distancing will be resolved by then, and we can enjoy a weekend of celebration of life, sobriety, and gratitude for a healthy planet.

Greetings Soberstockers -
Given the current situation regarding the Coronavirus, the committee has voted on postponing the event. We do not have a date at this time as we think it prudent to wait until we can be sure on a date that is responsible to do so. Once we have that information, we will communicate it out via email, website and Facebook. We appreciate your patience as we work through this. Soberstock is a non-for-profit AA group with all proceeds, after costs, going to Jails and Institutions. We have incurred expenses in preparation for the event (t-shirts, flyers, food, equipment rental) and are trying to defer and recoup certain costs until we reschedule. We respectfully ask you allow for us to work out a date to reschedule. If you have pre-registered for the event, your registration will be credited for whenever we reschedule. We wish you all good health during these troubling times and thank you for understanding.

Soberstock is a 3 day event in Odessa, Florida in March every year. Odessa is actually a small town located northwest of Tampa. It is slightly remote, yet still within a 15 minute drive to Tampa. For more info, click here
In addition to AA speakers, we also have live music from several bands on the west side of the camp. This area can hold 2000 people comfortably. The music will be all different styles from recovery-based music to classic rock, blues, metal, country, folk & more. If you are in a band, or know any AA bands that may be interested in performing at this event, click here
Contributions are made to the Tampa Jails and Institutions Committee to buy Big Books, along with contributions to Central Office in Tampa, and AA World Services Office in NY.

I had a blast last year, and plan on attending every year if I can. Soberstock showed me that recovery can be fun!!! I met lots of new people, got to know the people I went with better, and found the fun side of sobriety!! Thank you so much for all you do =)
Last year was my first time at SoberStock and it really showed me that the party has not ended just because I got sober!! I was there from Friday on and only got about 4 hours sleep but it was oh so worth it!! This event rocks and can't wait for this years!! Wooohooo it sure is great to be sober and living!!!

Thanks for a grrreat time! My friends and I from Cape Coral/Ft. Myers had such an awesome time over the weekend and I cant wait for the next annual Soberstock. The music was great and the fellowship was amazing. Thanks again.
This years SoberStock was a blast, and was better than last year's. I like the new camp ground. I liked the 3 day event. The speakers were absolutely wonderful, and the open meetings (were) great too. The bands - well what can I say, except great !!!!!!. If you have never been to SoberStock, then go next year. You will not forget it.
