CENTRAL POINT, Ore.- The Expo board is working to figure out how to fill the gap the country fest leaves behind.

NewsWatch 12 spoke to John Vial, director of Jackson County roads and parks, to find out how the Expo board is reacting to the news.

"This concert was a 4 day concerts that took a few days before and afterhand to pick up, so that will clear up some dates for the exposition park and the fair board. The county staff will be looking forward to what events to bring in and what else to do there," says John.

He said he doesn't know exactly what event will taking the place of Country Crossings, but he is excited for the possibilies that are being looked into right now.

John wants people to know that Country Crossings wasn't an event put on by the county, it's put on by a private company.

Central Point City manager Chris Clayton says that the cancellation of the event will have minimal economic impact on the city.

The biggest benefit of the festival was was to the hotels because it gave the city 3 to 4 day of higher hotel occupancy tax revenue.

Thebiggest challenge with the festival was staffing, which cost the city $8,600 in overtime.


The Country Crossings Music Festival is canceled for 2019. 

Front Gate Tickets confirmed with Newswatch 12 today that the festival has been canceled. It will be refunding tickets.

In a statement the music festival said, "This was a difficult decision, but we ultimately determined that the festival team would not be able to deliver the quality experience our Country Corssings community expect of this event in 2019."

The country music festival has run into problems since this summer's festival ended. 

In September, Bi Mart pulled its sponsorship of the festival. 

Some vendors of this year's festival said they hadn't been paid as of October. One vendor we spoke to after the festival said she and other vendors were still owed about 80% of their gross sales.
