August 13 News/Festival canceled and refunds

Dear Watermelon Festival Community. It is with heavy heart that we announce the Festival will no longer be held at the same Campground Park after 16 years.
Watermelon Park Campground has chosen this time to inform us that they no longer wish us to hold the Watermelon Park Fest at their campground. We had been told since May that we could move the Festival to 2021 due to the Covid postponement. We were taken by surprise by this sudden change of heart and the timing couldn’t have come at a worse time for us. We are devastated. The only explanation we got was that their business is doing so well because of Covid that they don’t need us anymore.
We will be offering refunds and an option to donate to Shepherds Ford Productions at this time. Shepherds Ford Productions is going to try and stay alive and bring you some smaller events as we move into the future. We will also be looking for a new event location. We hope we can re-group and hold another family music festival next year when we know how the pandemic is playing out. Thank you all for 16 wonderful years together. Although this is the saddest news to deliver we know that in 16 years we all created the the best possible family festival experience and we will do it again in a brighter future.
