After much thought and out of concern for our patrons, performers and community, we have decided to reschedule the Doc & Rosa Lee Watson Music Fest 'N Sugar Grove to the weekend of July 17, 2021.


As a non profit organization, we rely on a combination of ticket sales and local/regional sponsors to fund our event. With the current Covid crisis and shifts in the economy, the viability of holding the festival in 2020 would be challenging. 

 We have confirmed that a majority of the currently scheduled artists/performers are available for those dates in 2021 and we have already begun amending contracts in order to bring you the same amazing lineup that we had originally scheduled. We have also been working extremely hard on renovating and adding exciting new memorabilia to the Doc and Merle Watson Folk Art Museum.
We cannot wait to welcome our music family and friends back to Sugar Grove in 2021 for the 20th Anniversary of the Doc & Rosa Lee Watson Music Fest N' Sugar Grove and for the re-Grand Opening of the Doc and Merle Watson Folk Art Museum. Until then, we hope everyone stays healthy and safe and we will see you all next year!!!
