FESTEVOL - CANCELED - see below
Mount Sunapee will not be hosting the Festevol concert this year. When booking a headline band for Festevol our goal has always been to feature one or several nationally known bands like O.A.R., Barenaked Ladies and Guster. Despite our best efforts, this year we were unable book a band of that caliber and therefore we have made the tough decision to cancel the event this year.
