Organizers say this year's Country USA and Rock USA are off for this year due to concerns about coronavirus.

"Nothing pains us more than having to cancel these events that have become such a big part of our lives, our community and our culture here in Wisconsin," organizers wrote on a Facebook post Wednesdsay.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, event organizers say they have been in constant communication with local government and health officials. Organizers cited recommendations from the Winnebago County Health Department, which recommends against holding large gatherings.

Organizers said they're doing everything they can to reschedule Country USA and Rock USA for June and July of 2021. Those who previously bought tickets to the 2020 events will be valid for next year.
