The 2020 High Water Festival has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Tickets will be refunded beginning March 23.

“We are saddened to announce that High Water Festival will no longer be taking place this year,” representatives said in a public statement. “While we are disappointed to share this news, the health and safety of our fans, artists, staff, and community are always our top priority.”

High Water 2020 is not being postponed to a later date. The popular festival, curated by local Americana duo Shovels & Rope, is expected to return to Riverfront Park in 2021.
