The annual Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival has been canceled again. Organizers say the move was made due to continued impacts from COVID-19. This is the second-straight summer the festival had to be canceled due to the pandemic. The move is due to the nature of the event, which gathers thousands of fans in one location, as well as the event falling earlier in the calendar year. They say the health and safety of fans, staff, musicians, volunteers, sponsors, vendors and the public are top priority. Organizers say they are already planning for the festival to make its return on June 10th and 11th of 2022.
