Breakfast on the Farm canceled

CARVER COUNTY, WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – Breakfast on the Farm Committee recently announced that the 2020 Wright Carver Breakfast on the Farm event has been canceled.

Organizers explained, “In light of the recent progression of coronavirus (COVID-19), and the Center for Disease Control guidance on mass gatherings, it will not be possible to do this with a live event in June.

The Diers Corporation Family Farm has extended their willingness to host Breakfast on the Farm in June 2021. Watch breakfastonthefarm.org for the announcement of the event date for next year.

Those who have already committed to a sponsorship through a donation of money for 2020, can either receive the money back or defer it to 2021.

Anyone planning to sponsor, but who has not yet committed, please, is encouraged to consider supporting the event in 2021.

Winstock 2020 Postponed to June 18-19, 2021

Following much thought, discussion, and prayer, the Winstock Country Music Festival Committee is saddened to announce the Winstock Country Music Festival, scheduled for Friday-Saturday, June 12-13, 2020, in Winsted, MN, is being postponed until Friday-Saturday, June 18-19, 2021.

“We held out on making this decision as long as we could, but we realize people need to adjust their plans accordingly,” Winstock Country Music Festival Committee Chairman Dave Danielson said. “With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are just too many unknowns with what the world will look like by June. As much as it hurts us to postpone Winstock, we think it is the right thing to do.”

Going into its 27th year, Winstock Country Music Festival is an annual fundraising event for Holy Trinity Catholic Schools in Winsted.

“This is a tough one,” Danielson continued. “Without Winstock in June, it is going to be very hard financially on Holy Trinity Schools.”

All ticket and camping orders placed at last year’s event or through Winstock’s online/phone ordering system for Winstock this year will be valid for the rescheduled dates in June 2021. Fans who have placed orders with Winstock will receive correspondence via US Mail within the next 7-10 days with additional information on their tickets/camping. As organizers work through additional details, the Winstock website will also be updated accordingly. Please watch for this mailing and an opportunity to contribute to Holy Trinity Catholic Schools.

“This is something we’ve never had to deal with,” Danielson said. “We are asking for everyone’s patience and support as we work through this to make sure we take care of our fans in the best manner possible. While we understand times are tough for a lot of folks, we are also hopeful some of them will consider giving a contribution to the school if they are able.”

The Winstock phone information line and e-mail system is manned by volunteers. To avoid it being overwhelmed, please refrain from calling or e-mailing at this time, and watch for communication via US Mail. If you do need to reach out with specific questions, organizers ask you be patient for a response.

The Winstock Committee is working with artist management in Nashville in an attempt to keep the artist lineup as in tact as possible for the event in 2021. Some artists may not be able to perform on the rescheduled dates, and updates to the lineup will be shared once known. The dates in 2021 are one week later than the normal weekend of Winstock due to a scheduling conflict with a large event in Nashville, but organizers feel moving it a week later provides the best opportunity to secure talent.

“Our fans can be rest assured we will work hard to provide the best lineup possible,” Danielson said. “As we’ve said before, the health and safety of our volunteers, fans, the artists and their crews, as well as our community of Winsted, is our top priority. We are hopeful to work through this together with our fans and that they will join us in 2021 for the best Winstock yet.”
