Friendships and Explorations Festival
In the interest of safety, we will postpone our festival scheduled for 1 August 2020 until 2021 (date to be determined in early 2021). We base this decision on a number of factors, including an earnest abundance of caution as well as the recent Addendum 15 to Vermont’s standing Executive Order, which effectively cancels all festivals and fairs in Vermont for the remainder of 2020.
While it may be possible to legally proceed, we can not envision a relatively reasonable or responsible way to host a large gathering without exposing ourselves, as the organizers, to liability and criticism. Without being able to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, festival attendees, and the greater community, we have to look to our State’s leadership for guidance.
As tickets are physical and transferable, and we will not be issuing refunds (as noted on each ticket). However, tickets will be honored in 2021—barring completely unforeseen circumstances, of course. In the spirit of the events we host, we do encourage those of you who will need to transfer tickets to pass them along at face-value.
We are grateful for your continued support and open-minded patience these last few months and in the coming year, and we genuinely look forward to hosting a proper celebration when time and circumstances allow.
Best wishes to you all; we wish you well.
