We have watched and waited to see where this summer is heading and what measures are necessary for us to mitigate any concerns and challenges for hosting large gatherings of people. With guidance from our elected officials, Board of Directors, and community leaders we have made the difficult decision not to host events in June and July and pursue future dates for all events including: Thursday night Jazz in the Park concerts, Saturday morning Cathedral Square Markets, and the Bastille Days Festival which was scheduled for July 9th-12th. We are currently working on alternative dates and options to host our world class Bastille Days event in the Fall, pending any future developments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and welfare of the community is our number one priority and we will do our part to keep the best interests of our attendees and vendors in mind.
