It is with great regret that we announce The 16th Annual Rock House Music Festival scheduled June 6, 2020, is canceled due to the coronavirus and CDC capacity restrictions. The health and safety of our community and our artists and artisans are of great importance to us. This decision was not made lightly, nor without exploring alternative dates. We look forward to celebrating with you on June 5, 2021. We will be contacting ticket holders by email. We have alternative plans in the making so stay tuned for details. Much love to all that support live music and our mission here at The Rock House Center for the Arts.
