Forever Twilight in Forks Festival
July 2, 2020
Forever Twilight in Forks Festival is transitioning to Forever Twilight in Forks FAN GATHERING for 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the FTF Festival slated for September 10-13, 2020 cannot take place as planned. As organizers, we held out hope that we would be in Phase 4 of Washington’s Phased Approach, but after the June 30th announcement from Clallam County, that we will not apply to move into Phase 3 until late July, we don’t feel confident that we can or will reach Phase 4 in time for the FTF Festival.
But you know us – we have a back-up plan! We still want to celebrate #MidnightSun September 10-13, 2020 together with our Fandom Family, and to enjoy many of our already announced free events, brand-new exhibits at the Forever Twilight in Forks Collection and additional fun surprises! We will be joined by Twilight Saga Actor and Festival-favorite Erik Odom and official FTF Cosplayers – Edward, Bella, and Jacob of The Olympic Coven, ShAro Di Volterra, and members of The Volterra Coven! We of course will miss those in our Fandom Family that can’t travel here or choose not to, including our beloved FTF Cosplayers that cannot attend due to border closures.
Fans who purchased tickets expressed interest in coming whether the festival takes place or not. So, for those that feel safe in traveling here to celebrate Bella’s Birthday, we have events planned that can be enjoyed by smaller groups, with social distancing. Stay tuned because we will be releasing the schedule of events next week for our FAN GATHERING so you can continue looking forward to your trip here in September.
We have asked our featured guest – Billy Burke – to join us for our 2021 festival and eagerly await to hear if his schedule will allow it!
We appreciate all of the support from our Festival sponsors! Forever sponsors will be listed on the back of this year’s T-shirt. Annual sponsors will be rolled over to next year or refunded. We will be reaching out to sponsors individually.
Rollover to 2021:
If you have purchased tickets to this year’s festival, you can roll them over to next year. If the ticket cost increases you will not have to pay the difference. Please email Director@ForksWA.com and put “FESTIVAL TICKET ROLLOVER” in the subject line. If we don’t hear from you by August 15, 2020 we will automatically roll your ticket over to next year’s festival. You will not be eligible for a refund after August 15, 2020.
Request a refund:
If you would like a refund on your tickets please email at Director@ForksWA.com by August 15, 2020. Please put “FESTIVAL TICKET REFUND” in the subject line. We will send you a refund by check less the PayPal fees. Refunds will be made to the name on the invoice.
All incentive winners will roll over to next year. We will continue to do incentives throughout the year. If someone cancels their ticket who won an incentive, it will be drawn again, with the same criteria as it was originally drawn.
Tickets for FTF2021 September 9-12, 2021 celebrating #BD1Movie
We will sell tickets for the 2021 Festival through July 31, 2020 at 2020’s cost. Being sensitive to the “new normal” we are doing a detailed cost analysis to see if we can keep the tickets for 2021 at this year’s cost. Many factors will be considered including increased food costs, additional cleaning procedures and additional rentals needed to maintain social distancing and safety.
When we start selling tickets for 2021 in August, we will allow payments via check or online vouchers (available from our online store).
Thank you for your support of Forever Twilight in Forks Festival! We look forward to seeing you back in Forks, Washington – home of Twilight!
Forever Twilight in Forks Festival 2020 COVID-19 Cancellation and Refund Policy for tickets purchased prior to July 2, 2020.
Of course, we have received many questions regarding the status of our annual Forever Twilight in Forks Festival, taking place this year – we hope – from September 10-13, 2020.
As you may have deduced from the March 28 saga guest announcement – Billy Burke! – we are continuing this year’s festival planning as normal.
We do anticipate that, on August 1, 2020, we will assess the current climate as regards COVID-19 and will make our decision around that date about whether we will move forward with our 2020 gathering – or cancel same.
If we feel that it is in the best interest of everyone’s health to cancel the 2020 festival, we will of course refund everyone’s payments in full – less the PayPal fee, which we think is about $11 per ticket.
In the event of a festival cancellation, you will also be given the option to simply carry your paid tickets forward to our 2021 festival. We will even lock the 2020 price for you, so your ticket will be considered paid in full for 2021, regardless of whether our VIT ticket prices increase next year.
We do strive always to maintain full transparency with our fandom family, and always want what is best and most safe for you and everyone else involved.
So that’s where we find ourselves today.
Your thoughts are always welcome – we hope this finds you and yours in good health, and safely home as advised.
We love our fandom community, when we find ourselves together online and when gathered here in Forks, Washington.
No matter how it may feel for you today, this anxious moment in time will not last forever.
We’re thrilled to welcome our fandom family back to the town chosen by Stephenie Meyer as the home for her vampire family and her lonely high school girl who we followed into their world. Forks will forever be the home of Twilight, and so to celebrate the love story that started it all, we are pleased and proud to announce our weekend festival, from September 10th through 13th, 2020.
So save the date to celebrate!
We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors:

Our Mission Statement
Forever Twilight in Forks is comprised of the Forks Chamber of Commerce as well as a group of volunteer planners based in Forks, all over the United States and internationally. Our team consists of dedicated Twilight fans, just like the thousands of visitors that have been annually flocking to Forks since 2006. Our love for the books, characters and author are at the root of what we do during that magical weekend in September. We dedicate our time and energy all year long, putting our best efforts towards creating a loving, supportive environment for everyone who makes the trek to the place where it all happens.
Our mission is to provide Twilight fans with a fun-filled weekend, where everyone can enjoy each others company and feel welcomed and comfortable within our very tight-knit community. Twilight has created a unique fandom, with members from all corners of the world, and we as a team are committed to keeping that spirit alive for all those who still feel as passionate about the Twilight Saga today as they did when they first fell in love with it.
We are also dedicated to giving back to the community of Forks. Without the support of local businesses and people, our annual event would not be the success that it is. Our events are always planned with these groups in mind, creating fundraising opportunities as well, to better our beautiful town.
