Borderland Music Festival Announces 2021 Return

Borderland Music Festival is excited to announce their 2021 return to Knox Farm State Park on September 18th and 19th.

The two-day cultural festival takes place at the historical Knox Farm State Park in Erie County, New York. While the festival lineup has not been announced as of yet, past lineups have included a mix of country and bluegrass bands ranging from worldwide fame to local acclaim. Art, food and beer are also a focus of the festival, offering local varieties of each for people to partake in and enjoy.

In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Borderland Festival was cancelled. The music industry as a whole has been dramatically impacted this last year, however, Borderland continued to work hard to survive. They created a handful of music and farm-to-table experiences while feeding the local economy and supporting local musicians. The Borderland Broadcast acted as a stand-in for the usual festival, streaming audio from former festival performances over the two days when the festival would have happened. Borderland is looking forward to returning this fall with their annual festival, just on a smaller scale, at Knox Park.

Like many others, we were hit hard this past year and really miss that connection of community. I feel like we all could use this breath of fresh air. The power of music is so healing and we want to be able to bring that on whatever level we can.

Jennifer Brazil, Event Organizer

The festival is working closely with the State of New York and Erie County and will continue to operate under all social distancing and COVID guidelines. There will be an initial, limited amount of tickets for sale with hopes that things will continue to progress throughout the summer.
