Festival Suspended

Dear Friends of the Festival! Due to the unfolding tragic war in Ukraine, we have decided to cancel next summer’s Festival. It is not a decision we take lightly but, in times of such human tragedy, we feel that the right thing to do is to forgo the planned events. We strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine! Since the events and our announcement of Friday, changes have been made to the Festival’s trustees and management with further ones to follow.  In addition, we are committed to a full review of our operations in order to determine the Festival’s viability. All ticket holders will be automatically refunded in full within the next two weeks. Gift card holders are invited to contact [email protected] to organize a refund. We are deeply saddened by this turn of events but our focus now as a team and individually is to determine how we can help the Ukrainian victims of this terrible war.
