Another Event a Casualty of COVID-19- Lemonade Art Fair Cancelled
And another event bites the dust. The Lemonade art fair that generally happens the end part of June, on the SCSU campus, has been cancelled . This isn't really a surprise, but it is super unfortunate. I had hopes that MAYBE it might happen since it's an outdoor event, and maybe with some social distancing, etc that it could happen. But no. I'm just disappointed.
This is an event that I really enjoy every year. There is more than just art... there is some cool live music around and also some food choices and things you can take and make at home. It's a pretty cool event. And now it's been cancelled. It says postponed.. but it's postponed until next year. To me, that's cancelled.
This is what it says on their website:
The 47th Lemonade Concert and Art Fair will not be held as scheduled on June 25 due to the continuing uncertainties surrounding COVID-19. The Committee is continuing to monitor the situation and is exploring postponing the event until late summer if conditions allow for gatherings.
The committee is working on plans to share contact information for the 2020 art vendors on this website so community members will still have an opportunity reach out to these artists individually. Check back for vendor information and status updates.
So it looks like it's postponed. But if you go to the Facebook page, it's cancelled. But that's probably because you have to cancel an event there if you don't have an actual date to reschedule. So, it is what it is. COVID-19.
