The start of Music on Main, Teton Valley’s annual series of free concerts, will be delayed until July 9 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Teton Valley Foundation announced Friday.
“Given that Music on Main is one of the largest events in Teton Valley each summer we have a huge responsibility for the health and safety of our community, and we do not take that fact or this decision lightly,” said Amy Fradley, the foundation’s executive director. “But after much deliberation and at this time, postponing June dates to August simply makes the most sense on all levels.”
The foundation’s board of directors is monitoring the virus outbreak and working to make sure that the concerts, which attract thousands of fans to Victor City Park, are safe, Fradley said.
“We realize now more than ever, how much our community needs Music on Main and the healing power of music,” Fradley said. “We remain optimistic that we will meet again on Thursday nights this summer to celebrate our amazing community together.”
Organizers of JacksonHoleLive, the concert series held throughout the summer at the base of Snow King, have not yet made a decision about a start date, co-founder Shannon McCormick said. It is scheduled to start June 21.
“Our team is discussing summer of 2020, and we plan to have an announcement in the coming weeks,” McCormick told the Jackson Hole Daily on Friday.
McCormick said there have been discussions on alternative formats but that has yet to be decided, too.
