It's pretty much expected at this point that major festivals and events will start announcing cancelations for their summer plans. I hate it just as much as you, but I understand it's necessary to get the world back to normal as quickly as possible.

ByronFest is such a fun summer event that a lot of people look forward to. However, the ByronFest Steering Committee made an announcement Tuesday that 2020’s festival has been canceled over concerns about the spread of COVID-19.

WTVO details -

“Given our current environment, the ByronFest Steering Committee had to make the tough decision to cancel ByronFest for 2020,” the committee said in a statement. “The decision did not come lightly as we focused on the future of the festival, the safety of our community, the uncertainty of being permitted to host the event and coming to the time of the year we would begin to take on major expenditures.”

For now, like a lot of festivals, ByronFest looks to 2021. The committee will begin working now for ByronFest 2021, July 9-11, 2021.
