The Red Ants Pants Music Festival in White Sulphur Springs announced Thursday morning that the 2020 festival will be postponed until July 2021 because of health and safety concerns due to COVID-19. 

"To prioritize the health and safety of our hometown, fans, musicians, volunteers and staff, we are pushing pause on the 2020 festival and will look forward to putting on our best festival ever in 2021," said Sarah Calhoun, Red Ants Pants Foundation founder and executive director in a press release.

This year's festival was to be the 10th iteration of the Americana festival, which draws in fans from around the state and nation to a working cattle ranch in Meagher County. As of Thursday morning, the county had identified one case of COVID-19.
