In light of Hurricane Florence’s approach of the US Southeast Coast, festival personnel are closely monitoring the weather situation with assistance from state local and federal agencies. We are working with those agencies and we have contingency plans in place. We will provide updates continuously and, as always, the safety of our patrons is our top priority.
