Harrisonburg International Film Festival cancels 2021 event


Harrisonburg International FestivalThe Harrisonburg International Festival planning team announced on Tuesday that due to COVID-related difficulties in hosting the 2021 Harrisonburg International Festival, the next event will be postponed until 2022.

The group anticipates that the festival, which is traditionally held on the last Saturday in September, will return with a full roster of international food, entertainment, crafts and education stalls.

“We are saddened that the current circumstances require this cancellation; however, we will move forward with the return of the festival that everyone knows and loves in 2022, ”said Nancy Munoz, deputy director of the FairField Center and member of the festival organizing group.

The planning committee is exploring options to team up with another event in Harrisonburg to host a scaled-down Global Village celebration in place of the full festival. More details to come.
