Yellow Springs fall Street Fair canceled
- Published: August 13, 2021
On Thursday, August 12, the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce announced via Facebook that it was cancelling this year’s fall Street Fair, originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 9.
The announcement read:
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: After communicating with Village officials and monitoring the increasing COVID threat in Greene County, the YS Chamber Board has decided to cancel this fall’s Street Fair scheduled for October 9. The decision does not come easily, as we know many local businesses and nonprofits count on the income they receive from this popular event, as does the Chamber itself. We are closing vendor applications immediately and communicating directly with those who have already applied, please be patient with us as we work through this process. If you have specific questions or concerns, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No other details were given and attempts to reach the Chamber for more information were not immediately returned.
The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce has now cancelled four straight Street Fairs since June 2020 due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. The biannual event typically attracts around 25,000 people and is a significant source of funding for the local chamber.
