The Pickathon festival is a fragile summer dream; a small, independent, community-driven music fest held annually at Pendarvis Farms in Happy Valley. This year, the virus has had a devastating effect to the health of all the annual summer events. The 2020 Festival has been cancelled until next year and since Pickathon is completely independent financially, tickets sold in advance will not cover costs already incurred in the year-round planning.

The staff hasn’t given up though. Instead they are harnessing a creative potential to find solutions for the festival’s future going forward.  To everyone who has already bought tickets to Pickathon 2020: refunds cannot be issued. Tickets already purchased will be exchangeable for tickets to a future fest.

The latest newsletter says: “While we can’t gather together this year we still want to offer you all a piece of Pickathon to take home. We’ve been overwhelmed by your support and so many of you have reached out to ask how you can support us. We thought we’d have fun by making a special once-in-a-lifetime t-shirt!”
