It’s with heavy hearts that Dauphin’s Countryfest announces the postponement of the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Dauphin’s Countryfest has been part of Manitoba’s summer celebrations for over 30 years. Our festival is a pillar in our community providing both social and economic benefits, such as funds raised for volunteer organizations to jobs created through goods and services needed to operate the festival. The Board of Directors have taken all of this into consideration as we map out a plan of action during this unprecedented situation presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. In consultation with our municipal and provincial leaders, and with the welfare of our festival patrons, volunteers and community in mind, the Board of Directors have made the decision to postpone the July 2 to 5, 2020 festival until June 24 to 27, 2021,” said Ann Ransom, President.

“This has been a really difficult week and we’re devastated to share this news with you. This is my 30th year with Dauphin’s Countryfest so it’s hard to imagine a summer without the event,” said Rob Waloschuk, General Manager. “We thank everyone for their understanding and patience as our team works through all of the details surrounding the rescheduling of our festival. We look forward to celebrating with you in 2021.”

Organizers will be reaching out to each and every ticket purchaser in the coming weeks with options and details regarding the rescheduling of the festival and the transfer/refund process.
