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!
