Bonfire Jam 2013 Canceled
August 30, 2013
Bonfire Jam CEO Joe Lewis announced today that this year’s event has been canceled because it became evident that the investment is no longer financially viable.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have to cancel BonfireJam. Although we have put everything we had into this event, it is evident that the investment in the December event is no longer a viable option. We want to both thank and apologize to the fans, the artists, all members of the media, and everyone else who has supported BonfireJam since its inception,” Lewis said.
“We believe in the brand and hope to revitalize BonfireJam down the road,” he said.
The 2013 event in Chumuckla was set to include performances by The Band Perry and Jake Owen, along with professional calf roping and bull riding, on-site activities, fireworks, bonfires and camping.
Last year’s festival highlights included performances by Jana Kramer, Walker and Gretchen Wilson. Other past performers include Little Big Town, Lee Brice, Craig Morgan, Jamey Johnson, Josh Turner, Rodney Atkins, Sunny Sweeney and more.
