Event Schedule

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to announce that we will be canceling the 2020 festival. After discussion with our committee, local officials and health experts we feel that this is the best decision for our residents and potential guests.
During the weekend of July 26-28 we hope to be able to offer some activities that are safe for our community. We will keep you informed of the situation and announce any activities as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and support of our organization. We would like to say thank you to all essential workers who have been working hard to continue to keep us safe.

We will be back in 2021 ready for a celebration that is bigger and better than ever!
