CALF Children's Art & Literacy Festival in Storybook Capital of America

We have difficult news to share today. We are moving the CALF 2020 Loren Long festival to 2021. We looked at a lot of possibilities, including moving the date to later in the summer or next fall. In the end, we felt like the best way to properly celebrate the work of Loren Long and maintain the integrity of the festival, and to make it possible for our wonderful crowds to join us, would be to hit the pause button until next summer. Attached is our news release, which hopefully answers many of your questions. If not please feel free to reach out to us. It's hard to imagine an Abilene summer without CALF, but your health and safety come first.
