What are the Pine Barrens?

The Long Island Central Pine Barrens is a large area of publicly protected pine barrens in Suffolk County, New York, covering more than 100,000 acres. It is Long Island's largest natural area and its last remaining wilderness. The region contains a remnant of the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion, whose forests might once have covered a quarter million acres on Long Island.


Hey, I thought PBJ 2021 wasn’t fully funded?

Funny thing, we weren’t. BUT, we’re making lemons out of lemonade! Or whatever... When we decided to try to create a scaled-down event for those that had already contributed, some great people stepped in and offered us a space where we could re-imagine our vision and even keep our ENTIRE line-up!

So, the venue changed, where the heck am I going?

Pine Barrens Jam will now be held at Blue Point Brewing in Patchogue, NY. This event will now be FREE OF CHARGE.


Unfortunately the town gave us a difficult time with hosting PBJ at Ringhoff Farm in Center Moriches, NY. We cannot thank Lord of Nerds enough for all of their time and effort trying to make it happen, even with all the extra hurdles.

When is this shindig?

Doors will open at 12PM on September 18th, 2021. The Poetry & Arts Stage will run from 12PM-630PM. Music will be from 12PM-9PM. The BrewPub & Festival Grounds close at 10PM. 

What happened to the Fireside Acoustic sets?

The Triple Threat set from The Belle Curves, Anne O' Rourke & FeatherHeart will now close out the Lantern Sound Recording Rig Stage.

A special After Party, at a different venue, will be held at a later date for Pioneers & Volunteers. Pioneers should check their email for more info. 

What about Covid?

Our team is dedicated to putting on the safest event possible. Our rules regarding will be ever changing as we update them to follow the guidelines that are set in place by New York State. At
