Summerfest 2020 is canceled
With great regret, we are forced to cancel Summerfest due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While we are hopeful that summer will bring a reprieve with the virus and possibly allow us to reschedule our town's most popular event, for now, we are presuming that we will not be able to hold Summerfest for 2020. In the coming days, we will be refunding payments to all vendors who applied for and paid for a vendor space at Summerfest. We will not be accepting any new vendor or entertainer applications for Summerfest. We hope you stay healthy and safe during this difficult time.
