Due to a surprising series of events I have tickets to St Louis and plan to attend Big River SteamPunk Festival.  Is anyone else going to be there this year?

When I saw the new 2020 dates and asked the organizers to be sure:

"We're planning the Festival now, should have more details in June. Please keep checking the BRSF Facebook page for updates. Thank you!"

Since I have a place nearby for friends to stay any way, we have started planning our trip to attend this year.  It will probably be our first venture out this season.

From the organizers 6/23/20:

"Quick update on this year's Big River Steampunk Festival (Sept 4-7):

We are still planning on holding the festival, with several adjustments to make the weekend as safe as possible. Once we are able to confirm all of the entertainment, we will be posting here and on the website (target date - July 6th.) Thank you for your patience, and we will see you soon!"

"We tried. We had been working on different layouts, formats, whatever contortions necessary to present the festival in a way that was still identifiable as the Big River Steampunk Festival this Labor Day weekend. Every solution, though, created new problems; every answer, more questions. For a myriad of health, safety, and legal issues only present in a pandemic, we have had to add ourselves to the extensive list of conventions/festivals/faires who have had to postpone or reschedule their plans. The virus wins...this round.
However, we are cramming everything into our time machine and teleporting the festival to Labor Day weekend in 2021! Since the theme was all about time travel and Victorians' view of time as a concept, it is all too fitting. In the meantime, we will begin back-and-forth 'conversations' about travel between the worlds on our 'Friends of' page by mid-August. Also, our loyal merchants will be highlighted (think of it as a virtual market, where online - inspired by Schrodinger's Cat theory - one can be wearing and not wearing a mask at the same time. Whew - dodged that bullet!)
We had been planning on expanding into a couple of new corners of the retro-futurist universe this time, a path we will still persue in addition to the old favorites. New games! More machinery! We thank you for your support of the Big River Steampunk Festival, and we promise the delay will be worth the wait. Just keep yourselves healthy, so we can meet again soon."
