Starbelly Jam 2020 has been postponed to 2021

Starbelly Jam is a special festival; great entertainment, great food, great people, lots of happy kids and room to play — we’ve deliberately steered the festival away from getting too big or becoming too crowded; this festival’s success is all about the celebration of life through music, friendship and having a fun time for all in a safe and secure environment. Not too big and not too small, this is a “just right” festival Goldilocks couldn’t help but love. 

COVID- 19 Statement  April 22, 2020

Dear Starbelly family and friends,

We want to assure you that we care about the health and wellness of our community, patrons, performers, volunteers, and vendors above all other concerns. Keeping this in mind, after considering multiple options and alternatives to deal with the COVID-19 scenario we do not believe there is a safe way to proceed with the festival. We have been forced to make the heartbreaking decision to postpone the 2020 Starbelly Jam Music Festival until next year. Our rescheduled dates are July 16 to 18, 2021. 

We are making efforts at this time to retain a similar format and lineup of artists and children’s performers at next year’s show.  Current ticket holders will be contacted by email with our proposed options going forward.

Thank you to our Starbelly fans, artists, volunteers, managers, vendors, suppliers, and other stakeholders for your understanding. These are challenging times, but with love and support, we will get through this together.

The Starbelly Jam Board and Management Team

COVID- 19 Statement  March 13, 2020

Dear Starbelly family and friends,

The Starbelly Jam Music Society’s staff and board are watching the COVID-19 situation very closely.  As of March 12, 2020, at 4:00 PM PDT, the B.C. Government has announced recommendations to temporarily suspend events that host over 250 people. The policy from the BC government has not included a date range and as our event is over four months away we are cautiously optimistic that everything will proceed as usual.

If the Starbelly Jam Music Society or the BC Government determines that it is unsafe to proceed with our event in July, we will reschedule to a later date.  All tickets will be honoured at the rescheduled date.

In the meantime, we are following the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol. We are being vigilant, and we are communicating with our colleagues, stakeholders and the Province of BC. We are committed to the health and safety of everyone — our audiences, volunteers, staff and artists — and we look forward to seeing you this July.
