As everyone is well aware, COVID-19 is affecting all things tattooing, tourism, and event related, and unfortunately things on our end are no different. We have been waiting and watching carefully to see if the festival would be alright for this year, and it is with a massively heavy heart that we have to make the executive decision to postpone North of 60 Tattoo Extravaganza until 2021.
The festival was scheduled for the weekend of June 12-14th 2020 and would have hosted approximately 25 artists, 30 performers, 40-50 volunteers, and have a projected 200-250 visitors, which would widely surpass the allowed limit of 50 person gatherings.
Though it was a sad conclusion to come to, the health and safety of all of the communities and people involved is (of course) the most important thing in these unsettling times.
We are still working together with the venues and sponsors throughout these strange circumstances and we look forward to securing 2021 dates once the situation begins to settle, and planning becomes safe to move forward again, in order to make this event’s inaugural year even bigger, badder, and better than we could have planned for this year.
Please stay safe, stay healthy, and
STAY THE F%@& HOME!!
Kirsty Wells and the North of 60 Tattoo Extravaganza team.
