Back Home Festival Cancelled For 2020

By Staff | Apr 15, 2020

There is no greater joy for the organizers of the Back Home Festival than to welcome thousands of visitors to our hometown of New Martinsville, WV, each year. We work year-round to provide the best possible experience for both our guests and our community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult determination that the most responsible action for the health and safety of our community, our staff, the artists scheduled to perform, our vendors, and all festival attendees is to cancel our 2020 festival.

The Back Home Festival staff will now shift our attention to next year’s festival, which will be held June 25th through June 27th, 2021. The vast majority of our scheduled 2020 lineup will be performing in 2021. We also plan on adding some more acts and hope to make next year’s festival one for the ages.

We would also like to encourage everyone to practice social distancing during this difficult time in our nation’s history. Together as a people we can get through this, but it is going to take a concerted effort by everyone to do their part. We will be working diligently in the next couple of weeks to get refunds out to anyone who reserved a camping spot, paid a vendor fee, or bought tickets to any of the Lincoln Theater shows. We are deeply saddened to cancel our 2020 festival but we sure can’t wait to see everyone healthy, happy, smiling, and dancing in 2021.
