COVID-19 Update

As you know, recent directives from government and health agencies have required or strongly recommended the temporary closure of music venues and the postponement or cancellation of upcoming music festivals; this is happening all over Canada and the rest of the world and updates to these recommendations come to us almost daily.

With MJF 2020 scheduled for October, we are continuing with our efforts to plan and program the festival. At the appropriate time in the process, we will base a decision on whether to present or cancel the festival on the current advice from our government and health experts. Our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of our audience, artists and team of dedicated volunteers as well as our valued sponsors and local business colleagues and any visitors to Merrickville during the festival.
For now, stay safe and well.

Susan Piercey – Festival Director
