SunFest returns to West Palm Beach – April 28, 2022

SunFest officials announced today that they would not move forward with a reimagined event tentatively set for April 30 – May 2, 2021. The nonprofit festival, which has helped fans celebrate music and art for almost 40 years, was canceled in 2020 in light of the pandemic. 

“While we knew that hosting a traditional SunFest would be challenging, we believed that the possible reward for our fans was worth the attempt,” said Paul Jamieson, SunFest executive director. “We were driven by the idea that our fans needed something to look forward to.”

Fans who purchased a ticket for 2020 will now have an extra incentive to continue to roll over the same ticket to 2022.  “We want to say thank you to our fans for their loyalty and we are offering a ‘share SunFest with a friend’ ticket option – those who are holding onto a ticket from 2020 can now bring one friend to SunFest 2022 on us,” said Jamieson. 

Save the dates of Thursday, April 28 – Sunday, May 1 for SunFest 2022. For more information about SunFest or to inquire about the ticket roll-over plan, please visit www.SunFest.com or call 561-659-5980.
