5/12/2020 7:29:00 AM Project North Festival postponed to 2021
Another Northwoods festival has been postponed due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Lauren Sackett announced Thursday, the Project North Festival will not be held this year but will return in 2021.
"As you all know, there is so much passion for the Project North Festival. While Project North is about music, art, and the environment. Project North is also about the people, the connections and the camaraderie. Over the past several weeks the community impact of COVID-19 became very apparent to the planning team. While we had some big things planned for 2020, we have made the tough decision to postpone the Project North Festival until 2021," she said.
"We rely heavily on the support of our community, sponsors and donors and we feel that a period of recovery is needed before being able to further Project North's mission," Sackett added.
"We also want to support social distancing to prevent the spread. With these things in mind, we continue our commitment to our community and would like to announce that Project North Festival 2021 will be held September 10th-12th, 2021. Get ready because it will be 2 years in the making and we have some amazing surprises for you!"
