Cancellation Policy:

  1.  If the weather is such that we, as in the festival organizers, have to cancel the Festival for safety reasons due to weather then there will be refunds because ‘we’ made that decision to cancel the event.
  2. If the Festival can safely proceed despite any “winter” weather and a participant chooses not to attend then there are no refunds because the Festival will proceed as scheduled.
  3. A refund will be given if a participant notify us and cancels BEFORE the December 31st deadline.

This is for Festival registration, banquet, reception and field trips ONLY.  Since lodging is booked directly through the Paris Landing State Park Inn cancellations for lodging would have to be done through the Inn.
