Lucknow’s Music in the Fields has been cancelled this summer.

The annual country music festival, one of Ontario’s largest, hasn’t happened since 2019 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Lucknow Kinsmen, who have organized the festival since 2008, say expected COVID-19 restrictions make it impossible to bring together thousands of fans even in late August.

The good news, they say, is the festival will return on Aug. 25-27, 2022.

Over $1.3 million has been raised by the Lucknow Kinsmen since 2008 through Music in the Fields, which has been distributed to deserving community groups, hospitals, schools and charities in the region.
