The City of DeFuniak Springs has cancelled LakeFest 2020 originally scheduled for May 15, 16 & 17 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

“We regret having to make this decision,” says Event Chair Mayor Bob Campbell.  “We simply don’t know when the outbreak will peak or the economic consequence of this federally-declared state of emergency on our sponsors.  Therefore, the LakeFest 2020 organizing group feels it is best to cancel this year’s event and concentrate our efforts now on planning for an even greater family-friendly outdoor program in 2021.” 

City officials and staff take the COVID-19 outbreak seriously.  Announcements to any change in city services or events will be provided through media releases, on the City’s website at and on the City of DeFuniak Springs Facebook page.  Citizens may also call DeFuniak Springs City Hall at (850) 892-8500 during normal business hours.
