Dearest Sawtooth Family,
While we held out hope to be together in our home away from home this year, all things considered, we just can’t find the ethical grounds to proceed as planned in light of the current COVID-19 status. With that said, together with the City of Stanley, we’ve decided to postpone the 6th annual Sawtooth Valley Gathering to the summer of 2021. We feel that this will give us the best chance to festival with the comfort, freedom, and safety that we’ve always known, and look forward to the opportunity of sharing that space again soon.
We’re going to follow up with our new dates and full rollover information next week, so please stay tuned. The Sawtooth Valley Gathering is a dream that has existed largely through the support of our loyal fans and local businesses. Boutique festivals like ours basically start at zero each year and slowly come to life via ticket sales. That money goes towards expenses and deposits, most of which can’t be recovered or transferred. With that in mind, we hope that you, the ticket buyer, will consider investing in our event by rolling over your purchase to join us next summer. Doing so will save money on next year’s purchase, plus ensure your space in what is always a very limited capacity. We’ll follow up next week with more info to that end, so please stand by. Refunds will be issued on a case by case basis, and we’ll make sure to handle your request as promptly as possible. With this in consideration, the deadline to request a refund is going to be set for Wednesday, August 26, 2020 so please plan accordingly. We appreciate your patience throughout.

We thank each and every person that was bought a ticket, volunteered, performed, vended, or joined the crew over the years – it wouldn’t have happened without you. Additional thanks to our sponsors. We know this puts extra strain on an already tough year, but look forward to the opportunity of growing together for many years to come.
The City of Stanley and Mountain Village Resort has been a perfect host every year and we hope that you’ll return throughout the year to take advantage of all that the area has to offer.
We love you. We miss you. We can’t wait to see you back in the Sawtooths someday soon.
