THE Blueberry Festival
SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 2020 9am - 4pm
I hope that this message finds you and your family healthy
According to current NYS phased opening guidelines, the
Blueberry Festival would be part of Phase 4. Based on this, we
continue to believe that The Blueberry Festival, scheduled
for August 8, 2020, will go forward.
We know that investing in an unknown is a difficult decision;
in light of this unknown, we are waiting on calling the festival
until the last minute --the week before -- and will have safety
protocol in place. In the unfortunate situation that we cannot
hold the Festival, all fees will be refunded.
We urge our members and vendors to sign up for the Festival
– to have faith that this will be a great way to return to
normalcy, and to support our efforts to promote Ellenville,
and all the Festival and our area has to offer.
The Chamber Blueberry Committee is working to host the
best Festival ever! We feel that the community will embrace
this wonderful event, this year more than ever. This can only
happen in a safe and compliant way. We are keeping a close
eye on the forward.ny.gov for what will be required and will
work well. We are trusting our vendors and visitors will
respect the safety laws that may be in effect.
Stay safe and be well --
Dan Couse, President
