The 2020 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival has been cancelled

Due to the recent nationwide developments in regards to the Coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival. Human health and safety is our number one priority for both our festival participants and volunteers.

All registrants should have received an email with instructions on requesting a refund. If you have not received that email, please contact johnkennington@gmail.com ASAP.

The 2021 Festival will be April 14-21, 2021, and Nate Swick will be our keynote speaker.

2020 participants have been given the option to rebook in 2021, and many are doing so. When we are done with that process we will open registration for 2021 for those who want to register extra early!

We hope to see you in 2021!!
