2020 June Street Fair canceled
- Published: April 2, 2020
The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce issued a statement today canceling the June 13, 2020 Street Fair.
In an email, Street Fair and Special Events Coordinator Alexandra Scott wrote that “due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the June 13, 2020 Street Fair.”
“All vendors who have submitted payment with their applications will receive refunds ASAP,” the statement continued. Vendors are urged to watch their email for further instructions from PayPal on how to claim a refund.
Submitted fees are not being held and vendors will need to reapply for future festivals. Vendors will receive an email when applications are ready for the October 2020 Street Fair.
Artists scheduled to perform during spring Street Fair will not be able to reschedule for the fall, as events have already been booked.
As an alternative for artists, the chamber hopes to plan “an alternate event for the community at some point during the summer,” but, if unable to do so, will begin booking acts for June, 2021.
The Chamber asks that affected parties be patient with any correspondence; Scott assures Chamber representatives will respond “as soon as possible.”
