BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — The Black Swamp Arts Festival has been canceled this year due to the coronavirus.

The festival will now be held September 10 through 12 next year.

The festival committee said in a Facebook post that all artists who have applied will receive a full refund.

"We love the festival and volunteer all year to make it happen, but the health and safety of our community is paramount," read the post. "The Festival Committee is eagerly looking forward to next year when we can celebrate live music and great art together."

The Black Swamp Arts Festival is important to our sense of place and... to our community spirit. That is why it is with heavy hearts we announce that the Black Swamp Arts Festival is postponed until September 10, 11, & 12, 2021.
