Our annual Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival has been postponed to October. After the CDC released recommendations to suspend all public gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks, and the federal government recommending to suspend gatherings of more than 10 people -- there was no other choice.

This decision was not made lightly. It was not made without stress and constant scrambling to make every possible decision fit the situation as best we could. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience and further disruption of life as we’ve come to know it lately. But these decisions are made with our guests, our artists, our barbecue restaurants, our sponsors, and our staff above anything else. The safety and health of everyone involved with this event are more important than anything else, and going against that mindset is not what we’re about. Some things are bigger than a festival (though not much 😉). - Chase Colston, Red Dirt BBQ

It may not be exactly how we envisioned celebrating our seventh year, but we'll do it none-the-less. Hope to see everyone on October 11 in downtown Tyler.
