Peterborough Musicfest postpones 2020 season due to coronavirus pandemic

The 34th season of Peterborough Musicfest has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Tuesday, organizers of the annual outdoor summer concert series announced that following consultation with health officials and authorities, the 2020 season is postponed.

Each summer, thousands of people gather at Del Crary Park for eight weeks of free concerts held on Wednesday and Saturday nights.

“To postpone an entire season – a first in our 33-year history – is disheartening to say the least,” stated Brenda O’Brien, Peterborough Musicfest board chair.

“That said, we know it is the right thing to do. These are unprecedented times that require concrete action to save lives. Our community, performers, staff members, contractors, and volunteers deserve no less. Thank-you to all – our friends, fans and family – who have waited so patiently while we considered this difficult decision.”
