Pittsburg Peace Festival, Cherokee County, Kansas

Pittsburg Peace Festival, Cherokee County, Kansas
Creator: Blunk, Robert Jr.
Date: September 1970
This silent film by Robert Blunk Jr. documents the Pittsburg Peace Festival, otherwise known as the Kansas Woodstock, or Cornstalk. The rock music festival took place over Labor Day weekend (September 4-7) in 1970 southeast of Pittsburg, Kansas, in northern Cherokee County. Strangely, the film states the event took place in October of that year. Locals Kenny Ossana and Fulton Wilhelm organized the festival after being inspired by the Woodstock Music and Art Fair held in Woodstock, New York, the previous year. Featured bands included "Jerry Hahn and the Brotherhood" from San Francisco, California, and an early incarnation of the band "Kansas" from Topeka. The film includes only a very brief clip of a performing band. The majority of the film documents the festival organizers, attendees, vendors, and clean up. The festival sparked outrage over illicit drug use and may have influenced the 1970 state and local elections.
