Dear Movement Family,

We have been looking forward to reuniting with all of you on Memorial Day weekend, but the ongoing pandemic and state regulations have led us to the painful realization that our beloved Movement Festival will not happen in May 2021.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to navigate our way through these challenging times and difficult decisions. Our team is working hard to provide updates about future dates and ticketing options. We will be in touch next month with more information.

Well, here we are again.

Movement family, we would love nothing more than to be with you in Hart Plaza this September.

Obviously, this is not the situation that any of us had hoped for, but the health and safety of everyone involved remains our ultimate concern.
