It is with heavy hearts that Impact Entertainment, the producers of Citadel Country Spirit USA, must share that the festival scheduled for August 2022 has been canceled.

This decision was not made lightly, but we feel it is the right choice. As a small, family-owned business that specializes in creating high-quality live events/mass gatherings, we fought simply to survive the pandemic and are unable to challenge the largest name in our industry who has chosen to host a new festival in the market on our scheduled dates. With a smaller pool of available talent to choose from due to the increased competition, we do not feel that we can meet or exceed the expectations we set for ourselves, nor those you have come to expect from this project. To those who purchased a ticket during our Early Bird pre-sale, please note that you will automatically receive a FULL REFUND to the card used to make your purchase within 14 days of this announcement.

Before we continue, we would like to take a moment to thank our sponsors, Citadel Credit Union, the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau, the Tri-State GMC Dealers, Boston Beer Company, Main Line Animal Rescue / PASPCA, The Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show, and those on our staff, crew, and family who have given of themselves time & time again to create a show worth attending. This is, of course, in addition to the local municipalities, community members, and public safety teams who all came together to create something spectacular. Together, we have raised over $150,000.00 for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), driven over $3 million in additional revenue to the local economy & tourism industry each year, and entertained tens of thousands of fans – all feats we are incredibly proud of.

Finally, to our fans: we truly could not have made it this far without you. It has been an amazing experience hosting so many of you over the years. Our team has made so many memories throughout the creation of this project, and we sincerely hope you were able to do the same.

We at Impact Entertainment are especially grateful to those who purchased a ticket during our Early Bird pre-sale. We know how much faith it takes to purchase early and understand that this news may come as a shock to many. While outside forces may have caused us to reevaluate the viability of this project and change our course, one thing we will never waver on is the fact that our fans are our number one priority. Should you have any issues securing your refund within the next two weeks, please contact the festival directly via our social media channels which will be monitored until every customer has been taken care of. To reiterate, you will automatically receive your refund to the card used to make your purchase; NO ACTION IS NEEDED FROM YOU AT THIS POINT.

Again, we want to thank you all for your support and understanding throughout this process.

All the best,
Impact Entertainment, Sports & Event Marketing LLC
