Outdoor Festival Rescheduled

Winfred Chad McKendrick, President of P.E.C.’s Governing Board stated, “After extensive consultation with the festival’s stakeholders, community leaders and Mrs. N.Y. Nathiri, P.E.C.’s Executive Director, our Board has chosen to reschedule the Outdoor Festival of the Arts to June 4 – 5, due to the surge in Covid infections in Central Florida. While we looked forward to this year’s celebrations with great anticipation, we know that the health of our festival attendees and our community is of paramount importance. We are pleased that George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic will perform on Saturday, June 4 and that Kim Waters and Tom Browne will also return on Sunday, June 5, a line-up fitting to the kick-off weekend of Black Music Month and celebrate the musical genius of people of African ancestry.”

McKendrick also stated that the organization will honor tickets purchased for the January Outdoor Festival in June. Also, ticket purchases can be refunded in full. Patrons wishing a refund of their Outdoor Festival tickets should follow the below prompts for Refunds.
