Update: August 7, 2020
Wishing and hoping, planning, and dreaming – we’ve held off making the decision of holding our Albino Skunk Music Festival 2020 (Oct 1-3) in hopes that things would improve. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has not settled down and is not improving well enough for us to safely gather at The SkunkFarm for three days this Fall.
We had no idea as we all celebrated our 25th year last October we’d have to press the ‘PAUSE’ button on SkunkFests. We continue to plan our 2021 SpringSkunk Music Fest – April 8-10. Sure hoping conditions will have improved by Spring.
We held a small, limited attendance Garden Party at The SkunkFarm on June 27th featuring Dylan LeBlanc and Alexa Rose. A well-behaved crowd practiced safe distancing and wore masks at check-in and when in close contact with others. We are considering holding a few more of the one-day Garden Parties for our fans and artists. Garden Party attendance is limited to 200, The SkunkFarm can accommodate about 2,000 folks, so there is plenty of room to safely enjoy live music. A further caution, attendees bring their own drinks, food and refreshments.
As with the cancellation of SpringSkunk 2020, we will honor pre-purchased tickets at our next SkunkFest. Reserved RV Sites will still be reserved for that site at our next Fest. We appreciate our Skunkers working with us to make it through this rough time. As you can imagine, the cancellations have created havoc for us and the artists that were booked. We continue to incur costs with maintenance, improvements, and artist deposits. If you would like to help the cause during the pause, ticket holders can simply purchase new tickets for our next Fest.
We plan to have SkunkFest T-Shirts & merch for sale online soon. So stay tuned.
Even with having to cancel both of our Fests at The SkunkFarm and our first ever SummerSkunk Fest, we are committed to continuing to present our unique festival experience. We’re all in this together and we appreciate your continued interest and support. Really looking forward to celebrating live music with you at our next FES-TAA-VUL!
