2021 Festival Season Cancelled

SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN’S FESTIVAL SEASON CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS AND RESTRICTIONS

On Friday, April 2, Shawnee Mountain Ski Area officially announced Management’s decision to cancel the upcoming 2021 fall festival season. The cancellation affects the following annual events:

     The FIREWORKS SHOW

     The POCONO GARLIC AND HARVEST FESTIVAL

     The SHAWNEE CELTIC FESTIVAL

     The AUTUMN TIMBER FESTIVAL

     The POCONO FOOD TRUCK AND ART FESTIVAL

Along with health concerns for the safety and welfare of our guests, staff, entertainers, vendors and sponsors, the State of Pennsylvania’s currently mandated restrictions on large gatherings, we felt it best to postpone any large gatherings for another year. Additional government guidelines such as one-way foot traffic and social distancing in our entertainment and craft tents, outdoor food courts and exhibit areas would be very difficult to enforce and may have a detrimental effect on guest experience.

Despite the disappointing decision to cancel the 2021 festival schedule, plans call for events to return to Shawnee Mountain for fall of 2022.
