From Ramble Jam Web-Site
"TO OUR VALUED FANS:
The Rotary Club of Farmington would like to thank our amazing fans for supporting Ramble Jam! Whether you were a new fan in 2019 or have been with us since 2011, please know that your support has meant everything to us.
Unfortunately, the reality of the country music festival business is that the cost of talent has skyrocketed and competition for fans has increased to the point where Ramble Jam is no longer sustainable in its current form. It is with heavy hearts that members of Farmington Rotary have decided to pause the event for 2020 and do some thoughtful planning to ensure the future health of the Farmington Rotary Club.
Ramble Jam has been the annual fundraiser of Farmington Rotary and is entirely led and supported by sponsors and the efforts of countless volunteers. All proceeds from Ramble Jam supported the projects and mission of the club, bringing thousands of people to Farmington each September and providing over $300,000 in donations to local organizations since we began in 2011.
This hasn’t been an easy decision, and yet we have an opportunity to grow our story. We’re excited about that!
Farmington Rotary would like to take this opportunity to thank its key partners over the years including Houston Productions, Ensemble Creative & Marketing, K102 Radio, DLM Media Solutions, Xpressive Images by Jamie and more, along with hundreds of sponsors and vendors. We could not have done this without you.
News on a future event will be posted to the club’s Facebook page and website at www.farmingtonrotarymn.com."
