For immediate release

Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival Benefiting Living Classrooms

Cancelled Due to Concerns of Coronavirus

Statement from Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region:

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform our wonderful community of festival-goers, bands, merchants, vendors, volunteers, partners, and sponsors, that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Kingman Island Bluegrass & Folk Festival following the guidance of the CDC and District of Columbia. Our team has been working incredibly hard to throw a fun event that raises critical funds for Living Classrooms’ hands-on education programs on Kingman Island and in the District. However, the health and safety of our community is our first priority.

No Festival in 2020 means we need your support now more than ever!! 

For the past 10 years, this Festival has raised critical dollars to support the thousands of DC schoolkids who use Kingman Island over the course of a year to learn about the environment – and we still need your support to continue this important work. You can learn more about the Kingman Island Education and Community Fund here.

  • For those who have already purchased tickets, please consider allowing us to retain funds as a donation to the Kingman & Heritage Islands Education and Community Fund. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and would greatly help us in this time of uncertainty!
  • For those who have not purchased tickets yet, please consider making a donation! 
  • Please consider bumping up your donation to include what you would have spent at the Festival.

Thank you for your support of Living Classrooms, the Festival, and Kingman & Heritage Islands. We value our community so much and during this uncertain time, it’s important to remember that we are in this together. Stay safe and healthy out there.
