Due to COVID-19, the in-person Sputnikfest for 2020 has been cancelled. Although it was a very difficult decision, it is the best option to ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers, vendors and staff.
Instead of the traditional in-person event, a virtual Sputnikfest is in the works, scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Check back soon for more details regarding Virtual Sputnikfest, including contests and special guests.
