Powassan Smoke 'N' Spurs Festival

It is with much disappointment, but after careful consultation, risk assessments and budgeting strategies that we announce the cancellation of the Smoke ‘N’ Spurs Festival.
COVID sadly remains that gigantic elephant in the room… and, already talks of the likelihood of fall restrictions, it makes it very difficult to know where we will be in September, and very difficult to plan for a fall event.
It takes a year to plan for the festival, so putting it together in a few months has come with some concerns in these stages of planning.
The Smoke ‘N’ Spurs Festival is an outdoor event, but without all mandates, restrictions and emergency orders being completely lifted it is impossible to prepare for the regulations that “in all probability” will be coming which affect crowd capacity, ticket sales, sponsorship, etc.
On top of possible future mandate and restriction concerns are the increasing prices for rentals, insurance, fuel, supply chain issues, volunteer shortages, etc.
The organizers don’t feel right reaching out to sponsors, putting further burdens on them after the restrictions and lockdowns they have endured the last two years.
We apologize to all our supporters, sponsors and event producers.
We ask anyone who has prepaid to contact us at smokenspurs@gmail.com for information and details concerning refunds.
