Byron Days Festival 2020


May 1, 2020, Byron Days Festival announced today that it will cancel the 84th annual community celebration scheduled for July 23-26, 2020.  We are very disappointed to have to make this tough decision.  Currently, the “social distancing” and “shelter at home” requirements would mean we could not gather as we usually do.  Even if these requirements are lifted by July 23, it is no longer financially possible to raise the necessary funding to carry out the Festival.  This cancellation includes all of the activities** that are carried out as official Byron Days Festival events.

Byron Days Festival has considered all components in encountering this unforeseen challenge.  This decision was not taken lightly.  We want to thank our wonderful sponsors, vendors, and participants of the past and let them and everyone know that in July 2021 Byron Days Festival will return better and brighter than ever.
