The first summer festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

The Island Unplugged Music Festival on Pelee Island announced on Facebook Wednesday morning this years festival originally planned for August 14th and 15th would not happen.

“Our festival relies heavily on ticket sales, tourism industry partners, local sponsors, as well as provincial and federal funding to come to life every year. In these uncertain times, the board unanimously agrees that it would be prudent to cancel the 2020 event at this time. We have considered the safety of our artists, vendors, volunteers and festival goers, the best interest of the island and finally the financial health of our organization when coming to this decision. We hope that by making this tough decision now, we will be able to return in 2021,” said the Facebook post.
