WALKER, Minn. — Moondance Jammin Country Fest will skip a beat this year. The music celebration is being postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Scheduled for June 18, 19 and 20 in Walker, the shows are put on hold for a year, until June 24, 25 and 26, 2021.
“After patiently watching the response to the pandemic on all levels and listening to local, state and federal health and government officials, we have determined that decision is in the best interest of the safety of our employees, fans, partners and the artists themselves,” organizers said in an announcement.
“As of right now, we are still planning to host our rock festival, Moondance Jam, in mid-July and will have a better idea on whether that will be a reality in the coming month,” Moondance Events owner Kathy Bielo said in the announcement.
All ticket, camping and chair tag orders that were placed for the 14th Annual Moondance Jammin Country Fest will be valid at Moondance Jammin Country Fest in 2021. If the rock festival, Moondance Jam 29, is able to be held July 16, 17 and 18, fans who wish to use their Moondance Jammin Country Fest tickets and camping to attend Moondance Jam 29 may do so instead if they choose. Any additional options for ticket holders will be announced at a later time when decisions have been officially made.
Organizers are trying to re-book this year’s lineup, including Old Dominion, Midland, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Lauren Alaina and more, for 2021.
