The Mission Folk Music Festival has announced the cancellation of its 2020 edition, which had been sheduled to take place from July 24-26.
As has been the case with almost everyy high-profile festival in Greater Vancouver, the decision was made after weighing safety risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In announcing the cancellation, the Mission Falk Music Festival stated "We know festival-goers and other participants will understand the need to make this heartrending decision, and we share their disappointment. The festival truly appreciates the longstanding support our community, funders and sponsors have shown over the last three+ decades, and looks forward to welcoming them back to the park next year."
The good news in all of this is that all tickets purchased for the MFMF will be automatically refunded. The even better news is that fans of the long-running festival can help ensure its survival for future years by donating the value of their ticket, for which they'll receive a charitable tax reciept.
