After much discussion, contemplation and prayer, it has become apparent that we will NOT be able to have our festival July 2-4. This is absolutely the most difficult decision we have ever made and definitely not the decision we wanted to make. We are unable to take adequate precautions to keep fans and entertainers safe during this world-wide pandemic. This was to be our 35th annual festival (that's 35 years!) so we can't image the summer passing without being at Starvy Creek with all of you. Our hearts are broken.
There are a lot of opinions in our nation about the COID 19 virus and the dangers. The specifics about this virus may not be available for a while. Uncertainty, ultimately made the risk too great. At this time, we still plan to have our Fall festival September 17-19. Most, if not all, of the bands scheduled for July 2020 have agreed to perform in July of 2021. The dates for 2021 will be July 1,2,3.
If you can, we encourage you to visit the band's websites and purchase music or other merchandise. Some of these bands rely on bookings & product sales for all or part of their income. With cancelled festivals and shows these wonderful, talented folks would likely appreciate any support we can give. We pray for all the people who have lost a loved one to this virus and for those who are ill. We also pray for all the people who have lost jobs or are struggling as business owners.
We will miss seeing all of you. We will miss the busyness of the summer. We will miss the comraderie and atmosphere provided when all of you are with us at Starvy Creek. Take care. God bless! We hope to see you in September. May 13, 2020
