“Springing the Blues Festival, scheduled for April 9, 10, 11, 2021 has been postponed to April 1, 2, 3, 2022.

“The decision to postpone is out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and well-being of attendees, volunteers, staff, sponsors, performers, and vendors due to the risks and uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 and its variants as well as Governmental Restrictions placed on large crowd gatherings in order to lessen potential exposure and slow the spread of this deadly disease.

“We will be working to refund all tickets purchased for Springing the Blues automatically back to the payment method provided to us at the time of purchase.”

The Springing the Blues Festival was also affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, as the festival was canceled that year.
