Well, here we are, worrying about this disease that has everyone wondering what will happen this year. At this time, there are many events being canceled or rescheduled to later in the year. Our organization strives to produce the finest festivals we can given our budget and volunteers abilities. If we do our job, many guests will never know how much effort has been put into a festival. Many hours of planning, building, and scheduling are expended for each festival. Production costs include permits, fees, insurance, entertainment contracts, and consumables. Many of our staff are unpaid and donate enormous amounts of time to bring our guests great festivals.
Therefore, I beg everyone’s indulgence as we struggle with the decision to cancel any of our festivals or not. Prudence would have us strive to protect our cast, crew, patrons, and guests from getting infected so we will watch and observe this disease for the next few weeks and then we will reevaluate where we are.
Thanks to all of our people!
