HONESDALE, April 15, 2020 — Following considerable deliberations, the Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival Board of Directors has chosen to put this year’s festival on hold. The event originally planned for June 20, 2020 will regrettably not take place on the third Saturday in June as it has for the past 14 years.
In light of the fact that many of the festival’s key players and sponsors currently have to place their own health and economic well being first, any decisions made to reschedule in 2020 will be made based on sound public health guidance.
Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival has drawn thousands to enjoy acts on the main stage, downtown bands stretching the length of Main Street, award-winning sustainability efforts and exceptional works of art from artists in the community all for the most affordable price possible. Organizers are still working toward celebrating a 15th year when the time is right.
Roots & Rhythm is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
At the appropriate time, the board and committee will take the proper steps to notify valued sponsors, participants and fans as to any updates for the festival. The board wishes to thank everyone who has supported the cause all these years and hopes that support continues this year and in future years.
The festival organizers wish everyone health and peace during this time.
