Important Announcement Regarding the 2021 festival:
We have recently had an
emergency management meeting and weighed every single option available to us
for this year and have come to the conclusion that we cannot move forward with
this year’s festival. We have been experiencing a significant reduction in several
areas of the operational side of the festival. We have had fewer volunteers
this year than we have ever experienced, and we understand that. However, that
is not the only problem. We have also had vendors, entertainers, cast and staff
unable to participate this year. Mostly because of concerns for health and
safety. We in no way find fault in any of these choices. We support those
decisions 100% as we, too, have serious concerns about the rising Covid numbers
and new variants and our ability to adequately protect our patrons and
participants. Coupled with the lack of manpower, supply chain problems with
building materials have also made it almost impossible to complete already
started build projects here on site in time for the show. And that isn’t the
only supply chain problem. We are now extremely limited on bulk purchasing some
crucial operational supplies for the festival, including but not limited to,
toilet paper. And trust us, this is a crucial item.
All of these factors
leave us in a situation where we just cannot put on a successful show this
year. We are just as disappointed as you are that we have had to make this
decision. We apologize for this decision being made at such short notice. We
were hoping to not have to make it.
All of that being said,
we will be moving forward with working on improvements and repairs to the site
with the goal of having a bigger and better show in 2022. We will continue with
finishing builds at a rate that can be handled as supply and labor shortages
We will continue to
have work weekends and hope that more people are able to attend them. We are
not quitting. We will be back.
We understand your
concerns on this happening once again with our festival. We hope you understand
and will continue to support us in the future.
We are offering the
following options for ticket holders:
1. 1. Refund my admission tickets and special event tickets minus 10%
processing fees. (We do apologize for the processing fees, but we don’t have
any control over them.)
2. Refund my admission tickets only minus 10% processing fees. I
want to rollover my special event tickets. I will purchase admission tickets
again next year to attend.
3. Rollover of purchased tickets (including special events) to the
4. Keep my money as a contribution to the betterment of the
festival and I will buy admission tickets again. (special event purchases will
still rollover as purchased with this option).
All current rollover
tickets from 2020 are included in these options.
Please email email@example.com
and let us know which option you would like to move forward with at your
earliest convenience. Please send any questions you have about the above
options, or just in general, to this email address as well.
