2020 Wine & Jazz Music Festival
It is with much sadness that we announce the cancelation of this year's Wine& Jazz Music Festival. While we know this cancellation is a great disappointment to our community, it will also have a significant financial impact on community arts organizations. Wine & Jazz is Fund for the Arts' primary fundraiser.
Of course, the reasons for this year’s cancellation are centered around the coronavirus pandemic.
*Several vendors are uncertain as to whether they will be able to provide services at the time of the Festival.
*We cannot predict whether any social distancing mandates will still be in place at the time of the Festival.
*We cannot predict public support for a mass-gathering in the shadow of the current pandemic, even if social distancing mandates are not still in place
*Sponsorship commitments are down significantly this year due to business conditions and/or concerns about whether patrons will attend the festival.
Thank you to everyone who has made the Wine & Jazz Music Festival THE summer event in our community over the past two decades. Have no doubt that we will be back next year stronger than ever!
