I am guilty of totally procrastinating on sharing this information, even though I doubt that anyone will find this as surprising news. It is with heavy heart that I announce that the Huajatolla Heritage Festival scheduled for June 6th and 7th 2020 has also fallen victim to this scary pandemic that has invaded every aspect of our lives. In March, we started getting cancellations long before we were coming to the realization that our lives were being changed forever. The Festival is not being rescheduled at this point. Our plan will be to offer some smaller events once we understand the longer-term implications and when we can safely gather again. A piece of good news is that the extraordinary performers, Shelley Morningsong and Fabian Fontenelle, have committed to coming to La Veta at a “to be determined date” in a celebration of life. Please follow all the guidelines and stay home. Or if you must go out, be responsible and wear a mask while honoring the 6 foot rule. And if you are wringing your hands about this, please wring them under hot water with soap!
