Mariposa Cancels 2021 Festival

Mariposa Folk Foundation has announced that the 2021 festival this summer has been cancelled.

Organizers say that in the spirit of Mariposa’s values, including maintaining trust, it was important to us to consider the interests of everyone with a stake in the Festival as they made the decision on the fate of the 2021 festival.
Although there are still some months out, the 2021 festival, even at reduced capacity and/or programming, no longer would be viable under the current conditions with the number of COVID-19 cases, a continuing lockdown, the unavoidable setbacks in the rollout of vaccines and the low likelihood of receiving permits in time to do the extensive planning that is required.

All ticketholders will be receiving an email and will be provided the opportunity to defer tickets to the 2022 festival, or receive a full refund.
