The City of Yukon has announced the cancellation of the September red dirt music festival Rock The Route.

“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing impact on the public, event organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel Rock the Route, Yukon’s premiere Red Dirt Country music festival,” according to a news release from the city.


The festival celebrates the Mother Road, Route 66, with an evening of music, food trucks, children’s activities, and more.

This year’s festival would have been on September 3.

The event will return in 2021.
