Contrary to the rumors swirling around Charlton County, the OKEFENOKEE FESTIVAL HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED because of the federal shutdown. The festival has no connection to, and is not funded by the federal government.
That said, the Pioneer Day Celebration at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge — held on the same day as the festival — MAY be cancelled due to the shutdown. We will update this website as more information becomes available.
