Suwannee Hulaween is the latest festival to announce that they’ll be refocusing their efforts to return in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each fall, thousands of music lovers descend upon the Spirit of Suwanee Music Park to jam out to sounds from artists like The String Cheese Incident and celebrate all things spooky at Suwannee Hulaween. But due to concerns stemming from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this year’s festivities have officially been put on pause.

Just moments ago, Suwannee Hulaween’s organizers took to their social media channels to announce that the 2020 edition will be postponed. Much akin to many other festivals that were set to take place in the fall this year who have also canceled or postponed their upcoming editions, they cite concerns for the safety of their team and attendees as the pandemic continues to rage on in Florida.

“It has become clear that despite our consistent efforts in tandem with The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park to create and maintain a safe onsite environment, the State of Florida is visibly not ready to host the Hulaween we all know and love,” the statement reads. “Unfortunately, given the information available, we are not comfortable moving forward with the event in 2020.”

Instead, Suwanee Hulaween, which has become renowned for its impressive music curation, vibrant art, and welcoming attendees, will shift its focus to 2021 to bring back that experience to its fullest potential. All is not lost for those who were hoping to catch some good vibes during the spooky season, though, as they’ve also announced that there will be something special online for attendees to still celebrate.

Stay tuned for more information about other cancellations and postponements from around the world as we continue to follow the impact coronavirus has on the festival season this year.
