The 10th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival was scheduled for May 27 - 30, 2020 and has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak. As much as we wanted to keep our festival in May, as planned, there is still lots of uncertainty, and with the health and wellness of our festival family in mind, we felt the best option was to postpone the event until this fall. Making this decision now will allow us time to plan and keep as much of the festival lineup in tact as possible.

The new date is; Wednesday, September 30 – Saturday, October 3, 2020. It should be a wonderful fall weekend for a music festival. We always try and answer the question “What Would John Do” and are hopefully we are doing just that. Our greatest concern is everyone’s health and safety.

Our lineup may change a bit but we are working hard to keep as many of the original bands as possible. We can assure you it will be an amazing lineup! All Festival Tickets will automatically roll over to new date. Camping and golf cart rentals will also roll over automatically. If you have a camping or golf cart reservation and will not be able to attend on the new date, please email the campground at; billmonroeoffice@gmail.com well in advance of the fall event to arrange for your reservations to roll over to JHMF11 date which is June 2-5, 2021. You will also be able to roll over JHMF10 festival tickets to JHMF11 if unable to attend on the new date. You will need to arrange any rollover of festival tickets in advance. Details on the 2020 festival ticket rollover to 2021 will be announced at a later date. We want everyone to be comfortable in their decision to attend.

Stay safe and do what you can to help those most affected in these tough times!
Our best to you, John Hartford Memorial Festival
