As you’re aware it is a huge team effort to pull this event off annually, and the planning for each year begins almost as soon as the previous event winds up; thus, we should be well into planning for 2021 now.
Considering this, and in these current uncertain times in the global pandemic, we are having to make some hard decisions regarding our 2021 event.
The committee and staff have discussed all contingencies and have come to the decision that it is prudent and appropriate to cancel the 2021 festival.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to and support of the Cygnet Folk Festival
