July 14 News/Covid-19 update

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the corona virus we have made the very difficult decision to postpone this year’s 17th annual Watermelon Park Fest to September 16-18, 2021. We do not know if we will be allowed to have a gathering the size of our event this September. We feel like it is just too risky for everyone involved to move forward in the planning for this year.
All festival passes and RV sites purchased for 2020 will be automatically be transferred to the 2021 event at this time.

On May 8th we made this announcement to all ticket holders and on our website “Please understand that the deadline for refunds is May 20th. If we do have to postpone, your ticket will automatically transfer to the event in September 2021”. We appreciate everyone’s patience, flexibility and support. For those of you who held on to your ticket, we want you to know that your decision to do so has enabled us to keep this event going, and for that we thank you. If you have questions or have special circumstances where you need to request a refund please email us at mail@shepherdsford.com
As you all know, this is a challenging year for music festivals and the musicians that rely on them. We appreciate your support in keeping the music festival tradition alive and supporting live music. We are going to miss seeing everyone this year at our annual gathering. After 16 years of getting together every fall, we have grown up and older as a family. As sad as it will be to miss this year’s event, we know that it will be all the sweeter when we do gather down by the river again.
Be well and stay positive! We will get thru this by staying supportive and connected with each other. See you all next year!

We want to share with you our plans moving forward with the 17th annual Watermelon Park Festival. To prepare for the possibility that we may be forced to postpone this year’s event (due to the uncertainty of Covid-19) we have reached out to the venue at Watermelon Park Campground and to all the Artists booked for this year’s event. Both the venue and all the artists booked for 2020 are prepared and on board to move the event to Sept. 16-18, 2021 if we need to postpone this year. This is good news and means if we have to postpone this year’s 2020 event your tickets will still be valid for the event in 2021. We are moving forward hoping that the event can go on as scheduled in 2020 and we are secure in knowing we have a solid backup plan already in place. 
 
Because of the challenges many of us are facing, we realize that some folks are having financial hardships and may be in need of a refund to get thru this tough time. If this is your situation and you need a refund please contact us from now until May 20th by emailing us at mail@shepherdsford.com
Please understand that the deadline for refunds is May 20th. If we do have to postpone, your ticket will automatically transfer to the event in September 2021.
Thanks for all your patience, understanding and as always for your support.
Sincerely,
Dave, Frazer , Mark and Trevor
