Dear KVMR Celtic Festival & Marketplace Fans,
After much consideration and consultation with those involved we have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our Volunteer, Vendors, Artists and Staff to postpone the 2020 KVMR Celtic Festival until September of 2021. The California Department of Public Health has issued a directive that all non-essential public gatherings be suspended or cancelled. With that and all the other considerations we feel this is the best course of action to pursue.
If you have purchased tickets for the 2020 festival they will be honored in 2021. All ticket sales for the 2020 event have been suspended and we ask that if you purchased holiday pre-sales or early bird tickets know that they will be honored next year.
The KVMR Celtic festival is a benefit put on by and for KVMR FM, a community non-profit radio station located in Nevada City, California. Please consider making your ticket purchase a donation to KVMR FM to assist in deferring the cost of this years postponed production.
Should you need a refund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st, 2020. Refunds, less service charges, will be processed and sent out within 2 – 4 weeks.
We are planning a special thank-you for those who hold their tickets until 2021. Perhaps a wee dram to ignite your long-rested dancing shoes!

About The Festival:
First founded in 1996, the KVMR Celtic Festival includes eleven performance areas including five musical and six demonstration stages and a weekend-long youth arts instruction that has included Celtic music, magic, dance and songwriting.
The Festival is the main fundraising event of the year for KVMR Community Radio which operates as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity. Held in the early fall, the festival regularly draws over 7,000 attendees for the two days and the promotional outreach extends throughout KVMR’s listening area including a worldwide live streaming broadcast over the internet through iTunes and the KVMR website.
We continue to bring international performers to Nevada County and showcase an ever-increasing cadre of regional talent including musicians, dancers, and performing artists of every type.
Each year, the festival provides a professional performance venue for many young student musicians and dancers to perform in front of a live audience and hone their craft. Workshops and sessions are held throughout the event to provide musicians of every age and caliber an opportunity to learn from each other in a synergistic and fun atmosphere.
Funds for the festival are raised through sponsorships, vendor fees, ticket sales, program advertising, and beverage sales. The festival is produced by a team of over 300 volunteers who generously donate their time and energy year after year, plus KVMR’s small staff.
Your support of the Celtic Festival is a partnership with KVMR Community Radio that keeps independent, non-commercial media alive and well in the world.
We are honored to be able to continue to bring the music and magic of the Celtic genre to our community.
MUSIC, MAGIC & MUCH MORE!
