Word of South 2020

Next month’s Word of South Festival in Tallahassee, Florida has been canceled due to the directive of state and local government officials, based on the continuing spread of the COVID-19. Festival organizers have confirmed that the three-day music and literature festival, scheduled to take place April 3-5 at Cascades Park, will not continue this year as planned, but will return next year on April 9-11, 2021. Festival organizers are disheartened by the news, but emphasize that the health and safety of the public is their number one priority.


Great News! – Jamey Johnson has agreed to come to NEXT year’s Word of South Festival, on April 9, 2021! If you’d like to attend the show and keep the same seats you’ve already purchased, please hold on to the tickets you currently have, which can be used for next year’s concert. If you’d prefer a refund instead, please email or call 800-514-3849 before June 12, 2020. Please have your order # received on the confirmation email, or the printed ticket to process quickly. Any refunded tickets will be re-offered for sale to the public as returned.
