MSFF Jester, Trumpeteer tryouts are postponed

ELKINS — Royal Jester and Trumpeteer tryouts for the 84th Mountain State Forest Festival have been postponed until 2021.

Due to COVID-19, the Mountain State Forest Festival Association Board of Directors made the decision to eliminate the festival’s royal court members and all related events including the coronation, Distinguished Guest Dinner, Queen’s Ball, opening and closing ceremonies, and school tours.

Appointments of the official Girl and Boy Scouts to serve in the 84th Festival will also be delayed until 2021.

A modified schedule of events is being planned and will adjust as official guidelines unfold related to the Coronavirus. The line-up of events, happenings and dates of the 2020 Festival – with a tribute to the 100th year anniversary of the Monongahela National Forest – will be announced no later than Labor Day.

The 84th Mountain State Forest Festival is scheduled for Oct. 2-10, 2021.
