Updated Status of G-FEST XXVII (2020) due to COVID-19

Based on the information and regulations contained in the document Restore Illinois that was released by the governor of Illinois, it’s become apparent that G-FEST XXVII will not be permitted to take place as scheduled. A primary goal of the G-FEST organizing committee is always to provide a safe and happy event, so it is with great disappointment and sincere regret that we announce that G-FEST XXVII will not be held this year. See the G-FEST XXVII Status page for the full statement.
