Due to severe weather concerns we have made the decision to reschedule the Weird West Fest to Dec 14th. We had no hesitation in making this decision as we believe it is the correct one.
Preacher and I have been contacting our guests, performers, vendors and sponsors. We have been getting a sense of relief as they were also concerned about traveling in this weather. By being pro-active, we will have a very high retention rate and we’ll be able to deliver the event that we envisioned. As we update the guest list you’ll be surprised at how little the line-up has changed. Of course, some guest won’t be able to attend, but we are very proud they wanted to be part of our first event and we hope to have them back next year.
I visited Giddings today and meet with several principals and they supported this decision. I also discussed this matter with “Blue Skies over Autism” and they also agreed this was the right course. But, ultimately it is our decision and we are very comfortable that this is the right thing to do.
Many events in Central Texas this weekend are being are being canceled. By pushing our event back one week, the Weird West Fest is able to maintain the venues and activities that we wanted to bring to you on Dec 7th.
We owe it to our guests, vendors and charity to get the most amount of people safely to the Weird West Fest. The current forecast for Dec 14th is our typical 65-70 degree day. Regardless, there will not be another date change.
I want to stress that all the venues are ready, the reschedule is only due to the anticipated bad weather. We hope you can join us on Dec 14th and thanks for all the support.
