Festival Organizers Discuss DelFest Cancelation on WCBC

September 10th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

DelFest organizers have canceled this year’s festival which was scheduled to take place at Allegany County Fairgrounds September 23 – 26. The next DelFest will now take place next year over Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 -29, 2022. The decision was due to a local labor shortage caused by a surge in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant that has left the festival’s event services company unable to field a team for DelFest. Rob McCoury and DelFest manager Stan Strickland discussed the situation Friday morning on WCBC’s “Dave Norman Show”
