Sorry Elvis fans, the 2015 edition of the Windsor King Fest has been cancelled.

Organizers say that the decision was made after much thought and a thorough examination of other options.  They say that in spite of thousands of hours of volunteer work over the past ten years and intense effort this year it is apparent that there is not enough support to continue this event.

They also note that attendance has been declining every year for the past few festivals.

“The festival has been a labour of love for the organizers and volunteers and has been appreciated by its fans and supporters, but no longer appears to attract enough financial support to continue.  We have tried to get sponsors and donations without success and have put our personal resources out to make it work. At this point we cannot afford to risk further losses,” said organizers Richard and Nance.

“The Elvis festivals in Windsor have helped a number of local tribute artists get their start and most continue to perform today.  We will use our website and email list to promote their events and hopefully you will support them. We are happy to have been a part of increasing the local Elvis events over the years and are going to miss them as much as you.”

If you have already purchased tickets in advance they will be refunding everyone over the next week or so.  If you paid by credit card or Paypal after March 15th your credit has been credited and you need not take any further action. Otherwise you may receive your refund by email or direct bank deposit.
