Is it permitted to push off an upsherin until chol hamoed in order for family members to attend? Thank You.

Answer:

It is not permitted to get haircuts on Chol HaMoed, so this is not an appropriate time for an upsherin event (see Shulchan Aruch 531:1-2).

You can delay it until Lag BaOmer, which is what many do.

Best wishes.
