With events curently being canceled left and right due to precautions over COVID-19, Britt also released a statement on the subject and outlined the steps it will be taking for the time being:

Today, the Britt Music and Arts Festival’s Board of Directors, out of an abundance of caution and in line with other performing arts organizations, made the difficult decision to cancel the Annual Season Announcement Party. Instead, we will be offering our 2020 Season Announcement as a virtual, social media driven event. The time and date will remain the same. Britt will begin the announcement on Thursday, April 9, 6:00 PM. Please tune into the Britt Facebook page or our website at brittfest.org to see a video presentation of our third season announcement and to see the Performance listings. It is going to be a great Announcement with many of your favorite performers coming to the Hill this summer!

Given that our first concert of the Season is not until June 9, we are confident that the Britt Season will go on as planned. Throughout these rapidly-evolving circumstances, Britt will continue to closely monitor updates provided by the CDC and Oregon Health Authority including all reported cases, locally, regionally, and nationwide. For now, the Shows will go on!

In the unlikely event that Britt and its artists are forced to cancel concerts due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, Britt will offer patrons three options for their purchased tickets. The first is a full credit valid through the 2020 and 2021 Britt seasons. The second, a donation of the value of the tickets to Britt, which is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. The third option, if they are unable to return this season or next, Britt will provide a refund for the tickets to the canceled performance.

While at this time the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus in Jackson County is low, Britt’s administrative office is taking precautionary action so that our doors can remain open.
