Cancellation Policy

Art in the Burg Cancellation Policy 2024

Art in the Burg will be held rain or shine. The Festival does not have a rain date. The decision to cancel the Festival may be due to 1) inclement weather, 2) health advisory from Loudoun County or the State of Virginia, or 3) any emergency that would endanger the artists, staff, vendors or Festival attendees. The decision to cancel is at the sole discretion of the Town of Middleburg and may not be determined until the morning of the Festival. If the Festival is cancelled, every effort will be made to notify participants in advance using the contact details provided in the registration form. Refunds will be at the discretion of the Town.


For the safety of all vendors and attendees, tents must be able to withstand harsh weather and should be weighted; generally, a 40-pound weight on each tent leg is standard. Bring tarps to weatherproof your area should it be necessary. The Town does not guarantee the protection of artists/vendors goods and materials.


In the event of dangerous weather conditions (such as lightning and thunder) once the Festival has opened:

If the Festival reopens, the Middleburg Police or event organizers will give the “all clear” and allow vendors and attendees to return to their booths.


If the Festival must remain closed or it is unsafe to reopen, vendors will be asked to remove their tents and materials when it is safe to do so and then the street will reopen for vehicular traffic. All direction will be given by the Middleburg Police or event organizers.
