CLOVIS — For the second straight year, concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic have removed the music festival portion of the Draggin’ Main Music Festival.

The Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce announced Tuesday it would still plan a full week of activities for the June 13-19 festival, but would do so without concerts from rock headliner 38 Special and faith/family headliner 7eventh Time Down.

The decision to postpone the concerts until 2022 was made in light of venue and budgetary issues stemming from COVID-related restrictions and concerns.

“The DMMF Committee is the hardest-working group of individuals I’ve had the privilege of working with and, even with some exciting, new additions to the other events, no one is more disappointed about losing the concerts than we are,” said Thom Moore, DMMF chair. “Our bubble already got burst last year, so for it to happen again is devastating. The whole process is very emotionally taxing.”

Current plans for the festival include the June 19 Gearhead Gathering with celebrity guests Steve Darnell from Discovery Channel’s “Vegas Rat Rods,” and former “Garage Squad” co-host Heather Storm.

A full schedule of events is available at clovisnm.org/dragginmain or the Draggin’ Main Facebook page.

Information: 575-763-3435.
