I am sad to officially announce the cancellation of

Buffalo by the Bayou 2020.

With the health and safety of everyone as a priority it is the right decision.
Like nearly all festivals and weekends this year there are just too many challenges to gathering in a large group.
While we long to gather together I think we all share a common concern for each other and our community.
Early on I hoped that we would be back to our lives pre-covid by June but

it seems clear it will be with us for much longer.
