2024 Festival Update 17 February 2024

Dear Play the Fool Festival Community,

We wanted to take a moment to share an important update regarding Play the Fool Festival.

After careful consideration and evaluation of current circumstances, we have made the difficult decision to put the festival on hiatus for the year 2024. This decision was not made lightly, but we believe it is necessary to ensure the long-term sustainability and success of the festival.

We understand that this news may come as a disappointment to many of you, as Play the Fool Festival has become a cherished event in our community over the years. However, we want to assure you that this hiatus is temporary, and we fully intend to bring the festival back in 2025 with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

During this time, our team will be focusing on strategic planning, program development, and partnerships to ensure that when we return, Play the Fool Festival will be better than ever. We are committed to maintaining the spirit of creativity, inclusivity, and joy that defines our festival, and we look forward to welcoming you all back next year.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to our audiences, artists, volunteers, and supporters who have been instrumental in making Play the Fool Festival the vibrant celebration of the arts that it is. Your continued enthusiasm and passion inspire us, and we are truly grateful for your unwavering support.

In the meantime, please stay connected with us through our website and social media channels for updates and announcements about our plans for 2025. We encourage you to share your memories, stories, and feedback with us during this hiatus, as we work to make Play the Fool Festival even more special upon our return.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and continued love for Play the Fool Festival. We can’t wait to see you all again in 2025 for another unforgettable celebration of creativity and community.

Warmest regards,

Julie, Christine, and the whole Play the Fool Festival team
