Following last week’s expansion of extended public health measures, the BC Interior Forestry Museum is postponing Woodstoke 2021.
In an Aug. 25 media release, festival organizers announced the decision, citing the 100 person outdoor gathering limit instated by Interior Health (IH) on Aug. 20. The event is rescheduled for Sept. 3, 2022.
According to the BC Interior Forestry Museum release, all ticket holders have been contacted for refunds.
“Supporting local musicians, DJs and artists is essential in the recovery from this pandemic. The BC Interior Forestry Museum will continue to offer this support into the future,” states Glenn Westrup, director of the BC Interior Forestry Museum.
Ticket holders were initially contacted on Aug. 21, the day following IH’s announcement. In that message, Westrup stated he expects the festival to be postponed, adding that “if this likelihood occurs it will be a real disappointment for all the musicians, artists, volunteers and myself.”
Despite extenuating circumstances, the BC Interior Forestry Museum thanks the Revelstoke community for its continued support.
