Promoter Brett Mosiman said the event's name will not change with the move to the Mulberry Center, a campground and event center near Ozark, Ark. The 2009 festival is scheduled for June 4-7.
At times, the event created friction Mosiman s Lawrence-based promotion company and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Mosiman and state leaders sparred over attendance caps and other financial matters related to the Clinton State Park site.
Lawrence Convention and Visitors Bureau director Judy Billings called the move "a loss for the community.'' But an attorney for the parks department said "it's probably best'' for both sides, citing an unsettled dispute over $25,000.
