Capital Audiofest Cancels 2020 and Confirms 2021 Show Dates

CAF 2020

ROCKVILLE, MD (PTA) — Show organizers sent out a heartfelt announcement this morning regarding Capital Audiofest 2020, and sadly for the audio show going community the Washington, DC area’s festival of sound for 2020 had to be cancelled.

The show organizer’s felt that in the face of these uncertain times, and in order to ensure the safety of exhibitors, attendees, and the entire audiophile community the show could simply not continue as planned. A communication from Gary Gill and Chris Yuin (CAF Organizers) is enclosed below.

While we at Part-Time Audiophile are certainly disappointed with this turn of events, this decision was inevitable. We wish all our friends and colleagues in the industry only the very best in this troubling time, and hope that all stay well and safe. We will meet again, soon, we hope.

Capital Audiofest Cancels 2020 and Confirms 2021 Show Dates

July 5, 2020, Rockville MD

To all friends of The Capital Audiofest:

We apologize for our silence but are happy to announce that the Capital Audiofest (CAF) has finalized an agreement with the Hilton Hotel that allows us to move the show from 2020 to 2021 without any issues. We feel it is better to wait a year in order to provide everyone with the same CAF qualities inclusive of protections and safeguards rather than cobble together a lesser show.

We greatly appreciate everyone being patient in this difficult time and want you and your families to be safe and able to return to CAF in 2021. The official dates are now November 5-7, 2021, and want all vendors to know that their rooms are there for you to return to. Please let us know your intent so we can hold your place. See you all in 2021.
