Grafton’s 2020 SummerFest is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
At a special meeting of the Grafton Area Chamber of Commerce held on May 18th, the Board voted to cancel the 2020 SummerFest celebration and to host other events later in the summer as allowed. While cancelling an event like this is not an easy thing to do, all parties involved agreed that it is the right thing to do. Safety of all persons attending or working is most important. The current and ongoing guidelines and protocols for 50% capacity with a cap of 250 attendees per event, social distancing and sterilization make it impossible to have this kind of social event at this time in a safe environment.
The Board thanks all who helped in reaching this decision. The pandemic has caused us to cancel SummerFest, but it certainly will never claim our spirit for believing that we will return next year to hold what we know will be another great event for all to enjoy.
Let’s make the 2021 SummerFest celebration one we will all remember!
