Dearest Riverfriends and family,
After weeks of careful consideration and contemplation, we have come to the heartbreaking conclusion that we will have to postpone the twelfth annual installment of Riverfest Elora, set to take place in Bissell Park, Elora on August 21-23, to next year year on August 20-22, 2021.
The health and well-being of our friends, artists, volunteers, partners and the community we call home is always our highest priority. There are simply too many unknowns at the moment and the impacts of COVID-19 remain a risk for all large-scale events in 2020.
We are incredibly saddened to be missing what was set to be our best festival to date with the most exciting lineup of artists, vendors and partners we have ever assembled. We are however moving forward with planning for 2021 and are presently working with artists, agents and management to invite everyone set to take part this year, to join us in 2021. Our hope is to have some exciting announcements for you in the near future!
KEEP THE RIVER FLOWING!
We are extremely grateful for our loyal #Riverfriends who have already purchased tickets for 2020!
These early sales — before we’ve announced a single band — help us keep the lights on throughout the year and allow us to create a truly memorable festival each and every year.
With this in mind, we will be honouring any tickets purchased for the 2020 edition of the festival for one of either the 2021, 2022 or 2023 editions of Riverfest Elora! We hope this will allow you the flexibility to hang on to your tickets and help us out along the way.
Your ticket price will be fixed at the rate that you purchased it, so you won't have to worry about paying more when prices go up!
If you do require a refund, we’ll make sure you get one. We’re asking all ticket holders to indicate their preference of a date change or refund by clicking here and filling out the attached form. If you take no action by midnight on Wednesday, June 3rd your tickets will roll over to 2021. Refunds can only be issued to the original ticket buyer. You’ll receive your refund in as little as 60 days from when the request window expires.
Again, we are incredibly thankful to our community of festival goers and can not express how appreciative we are of all of you, who have stuck by us over the years to help us grow our little festival into the incredible, wonderful and beautiful celebration that it has become. We WILL see you on the other side!
Stay healthy, happy and safe. We miss you already.
Until we meet again,
Your friends at Riverfest Elora
