Organizers behind the festival at Canterbury Park made the announcement on Friday, saying that the event scheduled for July 23-25 has been pushed back to July 22-24, 2021.

The festival announced the first tranche of acts booked for the 2020 festival in December, with Carrie Underwood, the Zac Brown Band, Nelly and Third Eye Blind among the artists confirmed.

"In communication with our partners at Canterbury Park, as well as all of our sponsors and vendors, we are all in agreement that this decision is in the best interest for all involved," Twin Cities Summer Jam CEO Jerry Braam said. 

"It is impossible to predict the scale of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the health and safety of our community, our fans, our staff, our artists, and all involved with TCSJ is our number one priority."
