Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Festival postponed its 2020 event due to the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. The music and food festival will now take place May 21 – 23, 2021 in Augusta, New Jersey.

The festival had already been postponed from May to August. But festival organizer Michael Arnone issued a statement indicating that Louisiana — where many of the artists and vendors come from — had just been added to New Jersey’s quarantine list.

Read Michael Arnone’s statement below:

Hi y’all,

I was really optimistic until about 2 weeks ago. New Jersey just added Louisiana to their quarantine list and the entire South is seeing more cases. I am not sure that staff, vendors, Artists, or I will even be able to enter NJ coming from LA. Currently outdoor mass gatherings of 500 are allowed in NJ. I just can’t see NJ allowing a medium size music and food festival such as ours in 7 weeks. It hurts to have to postpone until 2021.

I have reached out to the agents. I have just about the entire initial lineup re-re-confirmed. I will announce the schedule in the next week or so. I think you will be pleased. Tickets already purchased will be changed to May 21-23, 2021 in the system. The barcode will remain the same. The website will be updated in the next week when the last 3 confirms are in. We had a calendar issue and next year we will be one week before Memorial Day weekend. May 21-23, 2021.

Please book your hotel as soon as you can. Holiday Inn Express in Newton has a block, ask for the CFF rate. The Econo Lodge in Andover is wide open. I requested a block from the Holiday Inn Budd Lake, I am waiting to hear from them.

I would be extremely grateful if you can retain your ticket for 2021. I am struggling like everyone else in the music business. I know a lot of you are too, as I saw over a million people lost jobs in NJ.

With your support, we will make it thru the pandemic to the other side. The Krewe and I will miss your smiles, hugs and handshakes. Our number one rule has always been. “no one gets hurt”! Be well until we see you in less than 11 months.

Michael
