Gilbert Folk Festival Cancelled Due To Bureaucratic Roadblocks

The Gilbert Folk Festival, a free annual community gathering that features singers and songwriters from all over the state of Arizona, has been cancelled. According to organizers, the Town of Gilbert notified event organizers that they would need “additional permits never required in the past and that it would not honor previously contracted rates for space at what was the St. Xavier Building.”

Organizers say that because of the short notice, they “had to decide between coming up with several thousand more dollars to hold the event, or continuing the event with less than half the stage performances and workshop space available.”
