Future SandFest events canceled

NORTH BEND, Ore.-- This year's SandFest and future SandFest events have been cancelled until further notice.

Organizers tell KCBY News in a press release that while planning the event they were concerned about a lack of revenue and were having difficulty attracting vendors.

They also stated that sponsorship for ATV events is not as high as it was in previous years and previous sponsors had expressed concerns about signing up to attend the event again.

SandFest was an event that promotes ATV activities on the South Coast, especially on the Oregon Dunes near North Bend in Coos County.

DuneFest organizers contacted KCBY News once Sandfest was canceled and said DuneFest in Winchester Bay is still taking plae as scheduled and will happen this coming summer.
