2020 Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest Canceled


What: Due to concerns around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest, which was scheduled for August 14-16.

Why: This annual festival is one of our favorite ways to celebrate and build community around music. As disappointing as it is to cancel, we need to prioritize the health and safety of artists, fans, employees, volunteers and partners. We know that it is in the best interest of the community to do what we can to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Too much is unknown to continue to prepare for this event. Because this community festival takes months to plan and hundreds of people to coordinate, we made this difficult choice based on the information we have today.

Our commitment remains: We remain committed to sharing the gift of live music with the community. We look forward to planning for the 2021 festival, scheduled for Aug. 13, 14 and 15. The festival will not be rescheduled for later in 2020.
