On Friday, it was announced that the 2017 Scottville Harvest festival will be cancelled due to a shortage of funding and volunteers. In a statement from the newly formed Harvest Festival executive committee, they said “This time off will allow the committee the opportunity to implement a new vision for the festival, offer more quality attractions for families and create a more sustainable event for years to come.” According to the Scottville Harvest Festival Facebook page, the 2016 Harvest Festival lost money. At this time they are discussing forming a 501c3 in order to create a more sustainable festival. Fundraising would need to be completed in order to accomplish this step. They are working towards bring the Harvest Festival back in 2018.
