The 2020 Yellow Pine Music Festival Has Been Cancelled for this year.

We are sharing this information on behalf of the Village of Yellow Pine.

Our decision was not made lightly. We had to consider the current situation we are in and examine the outlook for the coming months. This is the necessary and right decision for the safety of our community and all participants.

Yellow Pine is changing into more of a retirement community and due to the potential impacts of COVID19 on the residents – and with the historic annual attendance of 2,000+ people for the festival, it just wasn’t a wise thing to try and host this event this year.

Please respect the needs of the community and help us avoid a community spread situation. As far as I know there will be NO vendors, bands, or other events to entice people into town for the traditional music festival weekend.

However there will be other smaller events planned throughout the summer to assist in raising money to support the Village. Stay tuned!

Thanks, the Village of Yellow Pine.
