Organizers of the popular Rockin' the Rivers music festival announced on Monday morning that the annual event has been canceled for this year and is postponed until next year.
Here's the entire post:
Monday, July 13, 2020 - After months of monitoring and discussions with our team and local health officials, we’re absolutely heartbroken to announce that in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rockin’ the Rivers has to be postponed until August 2021.
Thank you for being patient with us while we navigated this. We are a homegrown festival with the goal of bringing good folks together to celebrate great music. We held out as long as we could before making the final call but unfortunately, our event permits were denied based on the current guidelines for public gatherings set by federal, state and local authorities. Ultimately, the safety and travel concerns for the bands, vendors, volunteers, and YOU could not be ignored in this unprecedented time.
We know these coming days will be a trying time for everyone. As a small, independent festival, we take a lot of pride in our event, but the heart of our decision is centered on you, our Rockin’ the Rivers’ family, and ensuring we can collectively remain strong and connected for years to come.
We can’t wait to do this thing right next summer; when everyone will be able to attend, and these wild times are hopefully far behind us.
All ticket sales and campsite reservations will be honored for 2021. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for further announcements, line-ups, ticket giveaways, and more.
Until we can gather again, stay safe, take care of yourselves, and keep on Rockin’!
