March 29, 2012 :: Special Announcement
Dear Harmony Festival Family,
On behalf of the Harmony Festival Board of Directors and management team, we sincerely thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we have grown and evolved The Harmony Festival from a grassroots community event in 1978, into the nationally renown music, arts and cultural festival that you’ve come to expect year after year. It is with a deep sense of regret that we announce that after 33 years we will not be producing a Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, CA in June 2012.
As you can imagine, this is a very difficult announcement for us to make. We have appreciate your continued patience as we took the necessary time to prepare a thoughtful message to inform the greater Harmony community of our decision, which is now effective immediately.
You might ask why we made this decision. Please trust that we have spent many months creatively exploring dozens of promising options in the hopes that we could keep this magical event alive this year. We know this news is a great disappointment to the entire Harmony community, and we share your feelings of disappointment. We ask that we work together to move beyond this stage, toward hope and optimism for future Harmony Festivals.
We are working on plans to reorganize the company and the possibility of creating Harmony Festivals in the coming years. We are counting on engaging your support and participation going forward as we re-envision a sustainable future for the festival.
We welcome your comments and feedback at www.harmonyfestivalonline.com and look forward to the possibility of rekindling the Harmony Festival flame so it shines even more brightly again in the future.
