** Closed until further notice.**
The probability of any festivals in 2020 is
unlikely due to government mandates and CDC recommendations.
** IMPORTANT NOTICE **
on recommendations from President Donald Trump, Governor Ralph Northam
and the nation’s health protection agency that all mass gatherings be
cancelled during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Carter Family Fold will
be closed until June 10th. Should further closures be necessary,
announcements will be made on our website and Facebook prior to those
events. We hope that circumstances change and we can re-start our
Saturday shows before that time. We regret that cancelling shows is
necessary, but we want to do all we can to keep everyone
Under the guidance of the
CDC, we feel closing is the best for the health of our visitors,
volunteers and bands. The CDC states that “COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is an
emerging respiratory disease and there is more to learn about its
transmission, clinical course and populations at increased risk of
disease and complications”
