Annual Bluegrass Festival Canceled

In a press release from Executive Director Ashley Butcher from the Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce regarding the 2020 Bluegrass Festival: 

The Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce, with the

recommendation of the City of Carl Junction, has made the very difficult decision

to cancel the Annual Bluegrass Festival, scheduled to be held the last

weekend of September 2020.

The Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce sat down yesterday with

County Health officials and Committee Members to discuss the likelihood of

moving forward with such a large event. The overall consensus was, COVID

numbers are still on the rise. The best option to keep our guests, staff,

volunteers and community members safe would be to cancel.

We look forward to a bigger and better Bluegrass Festival in 2021.
