Unfortunately for the festival, even though this is only their second year, it also happens to be the second time they’ve had to postpone. Their inaugural festival was originally scheduled to take place on September 15, 2018, but ended up being forced to be canceled due to public safety concerns surrounding Hurricane Florence. They ended up rescheduling and holding the fest on April 6, which worked well in 2019, but this year, things are being interrupted once again.
