On June 8th, the difficult decision was made to officially cancel the 2020 Southington Apple Harvest Festival.
Maintaining the health and safety of our community members, vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. There is concern regarding the Coronavirus pandemic and its projected resurgence in the fall, and the CDC and State guidelines for outdoor group gatherings and social distancing are not logistically viable based on our Festival’s size and location. Additionally, the Festival has not received the funding necessary to move forward as vendors and sponsors are struggling with the current economic situation and cannot commit to participating.
With all of these factors in mind, cancelling the Festival was determined to be the right decision for this year. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to our community to celebrate the return to our annual tradition of great food, free entertainment, and exciting special events in October 2021.
