Hodag Country Festival Organizers Cancel Event

ONEIDA NATION, WI (Ben Caxton) — Just two days after a county committee granted a large gathering permit to hold the event, organizers of the Hodag Country Festival in Oneida County have reversed course and canceled the 2020 event. Oneida County Board Chair Dave Hintz says that’s the right call “I think the producers, the promoters of Country Fest made absolutely the right choice for the right reason,” he said. “They were given the opportunity to handle or develop the festival, then listen to the feedback from the public and others about their event.” Organizers apologized for creating stress and division in the Rhinelander community over the prospect of holding the music festival. Hintz said the full county board had been considering a plan to reverse the Public Safety Committee’s decision to grant the permit.
