Ashley for the Arts is the latest area festival to be cancelled for 2020. 

Organizers say the annual August music festival in Arcadia will resume next year, but it was called off for this summer as a result of the coronavirus, primarily the government restrictions against large gatherings. 

The event was scheduled for August 6th through the 8th, and Lynyrd Skynyrd was announced as the headline act for 2020. 

Ashley Furniture, based in Arcadia, founded the festival 11 years ago, and donates the proceeds to dozens of non-profit organizations. 

People holding tickets for this year’s event will be able to either get refunds or donate the cost to charity.
