Since 2009 Wakefest has been proud to bring together our community and help a local family in need through a fun weekend including a wakeboarding contest and golf tournament. Over the last 12 years, we have been blessed with tremendous support from both individuals and small businesses in our area, and we looked forward to the same participation and support for this year. However, the last several months have been difficult across our nation, particularly here at home in Albany. Although we have been looking forward to this summer's event, we must be considerate of the health risks and economic hardship that families and businesses are facing. In light of current events, and after a discussion with our friends at Georgia Wake Series, we believe that it is in the best interests of our community and Wakefest to cancel the 2020 event. Doing so will allow us all to come back stronger in the summer of 2021. Thank you for your support throughout the years and we can’t wait to get together again in 2021!
