2020 Festival Cancelled
Dear festival patron,
We hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe during this time. As we all know, this year has been a difficult one due to the impact of COVID-19 on our lives. We send our sincerest thoughts and prayers to those who have seen the worst of this pandemic. Several of you have been inquiring about the 2020 Tampa Bay Theatre Festival, and we are ready to provide you with an update.
Each year, the festival relies heavily on our partnership with local theatres and sponsors, and many are working to recover from the impact that COVID-19 has had on our community. We also had an exciting festival fundraiser scheduled which, unfortunately, was cancelled in April. These concerns, in addition to feelings of uncertainty during this time, have led us to cancel the 2020 Tampa Bay Theatre Festival. It was a difficult decision to make, but we believe it is the best decision. We look forward to bringing this event back to our Tampa Bay community in 2021. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
