Thank you for your ticket purchase to Joyful Noise 2021. Our top priority is the well-being of our festival attendees, employees, and event sponsors. We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and current MN event guidelines. After much prayer and consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we have made the decision to cancel Joyful Noise 2021 .

An email was sent out to each ticket holder in February informing you of the event cancellation and the refund process. At this time, all credit card refunds have been processed. As indicated in the original email, if a check refund was required that process is more complicated. We hope to have all of the checks mailed out by the end of March. 

You were sent an email indicating whether your refund was back to the original credit card you used when purchasing your tickets or if your refund will be by check. Refunds should appear back on your credit card within 5 to 7 business days. 


If you purchased your Joyful Noise tickets through a third-party ticket reseller, you will have to contact the original purchaser and/or ticket service directly about how they handle and availability of refunds.

The Northwestern Ticket Office is happy to answer your questions regarding the cancellation of Joyful Noise and we can also look at your ticket purchase. Contact us through email  ticketoffice@unwsp.edu  or call 651-631-5151.

We understand that this announcement comes with an enormous disappointment. We love Joyful Noise as much as you do. We are exploring other options for gathering as a community and hope to announce events that meet the MN COVID event guidelines and mandates.
