The Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival has been postponed due to a surge of COVID-19 cases in California and across the nation, organizers announced Thursday.
According to a joint statement from Wonderlust Events, LLC and the Port of San Diego, this year’s event, set for Nov. 19-21, was put off after “weeks of discussions and research” with county, state and national public health officials.
“The continued safety of the community had to be front and center in our decision making,” said Michael G. Brown, the port’s vice president of marketing and communications. “We pushed as long as we could working with the Wonderfront Festival team to see if case trends might look more positive or new information would give us the comfort level needed to move forward. But at the end of the day, the situation has not improved.”
Paul Thornton, managing partner of Wonderlust Events, said “the Wonderfront community must come first. Once again, we will pivot and work with our artists to push this lineup to our new 2022 dates.”
