DelFest organizers have announced that after having to postpone DelFest twice this year, and despite their best efforts through working with state and local government, they’ve decided to postpone Delfest again–this time until Memorial Day weekend of 2022.
The festival was set to take place at the Allegany County Fairgrounds on Sept. 23 through 26, however, a surge in Delta variant-driven COVID-19 cases left the festival’s services company short-handed. They also lost the essential services of the local shuttle company and vendors.
The festival which is put on by the McCoury family was slated to headline The Travelin’ McCourys, Béla Fleck’s My Bluegrass Heart, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Railroad Earth, Old Crow Medicine Show, Sam Bush, and Leftover Salmon. DelFest will be offering refunds, all non-refunded tickets will be honored at the 2022 festival.
