Rockin' the Rivers festival postponed
July 15, 2020
Three Forks residents who were hoping to "Rock the Rivers" later this summer will have to wait until next year.
Officials for the annual Rockin' the Rivers music festival at the "Bridge" near Three Forks announced Monday they will be postponing the event until 2021. The festival had originally been scheduled for August 13 to 15.
A release from the festival said after months of monitoring and discussions with our team and local health officials, organizers are absolutely heartbroken to announce that in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rockin' the Rivers has to be postponed until August 2021.
"Thank you for being patient with us while we navigated this. We are a homegrown festival with the goal of bringing good folks together to celebrate great music. We held out as long as we could before making the final call but unfortunately, our event permits were denied based on the current guidelines for public gatherings set by federal, state, and local authorities. Ultimately, the safety and travel concerns for the bands, vendors, volunteers, and YOU could not be ignored in this unprecedented time," the release states. "We know these coming days will be a trying time for everyone. As a small, independent festival, we take a lot of pride in our event, but the heart of our decision is centered on you, our Rockin' the Rivers' family, and ensuring we can collectively remain strong and connected for years to come."
All ticket sales and campsite reservations will be honored for 2021.
