After much research about health and safety issues, listening to our Governor’s daily briefings and his plan for reopening Illinois, watching Woodstock City Council meetings, communicating with other presenters and organizations, and talking with performers and audience members, we have decided not to have an in-person Festival this year.
Because we carefully curate the Festival to offer diversity in music styles and performers, we would like to keep this year’s lineup intact. Therefore, we have invited all of this year’s performers to join us next year on Sunday, July 18, 2021.
However, this does NOT mean we are cancelling the Festival; rather, we are reimagining it. Stay tuned to this website for details about our special “Woodstock Folk Festival – Reimagined,” an online event on Sunday, July 19, 2020. Great music – and more!
We’ll also be premiering “Woodstock Wednesdays” in June. Again, stay tuned to this website for updates.
