The Ponderosa Music and Arts Festival in Rock Creek is on hold until a final announcement on Thursday, Aug. 20 at 9 a.m.

In a release issued on Wednesday, the co-founders Kia Zahrabi and Kris Hargrave state “we cannot say that Ponderosa is moving ahead at the Rock Creek Fairgrounds as scheduled.”

“As previously stated, we’ve been actively monitoring the status of the fire and are doing our best to address the situation in the safest and most practical way possible,” the release states.

The organizers are hosting a meeting on Thursday to discus the best course of action and make a final announcement prior to the festival scheduled from Aug. 21-23.

“We are actively pursuing all possibilities to move forward with this event,” the release said.
