OHIO – Last year was a rough year for Ohio festivals and events with more than 70 major Festivals cancelled around Ohio, will 2021 look the same?
Well sadly if we look at what was going on in the world around February 2020 and what is going on right now, not much has changed, actually Covid-19 has a firm hold on Ohio at this time with active and rising cases all over Ohio.
The good news is vaccines are being distributed and people are getting vaccinated, but the question is when can we start getting to events and festivals? Vaccines are getting out to the people but report that less than needed for the 60-70% vaccinations that states need for herd immunity. This will push back at least the spring events most likely.
Pike county Dogwood festival has already reported that they will not have a festival in April.
“We are disappointed as well as everyone else for the cancellation. Our guests and vendors are our main priority,” said the community.
Major festivals at the beginning of fair and festival season in the area Ross counites fest of the flowering moon and Deer Creek Dam Days in May. No words are in on their status yet.
As of 3:00 p.m. today, Wednesday, January 13, 2021 there is a total of 707,885 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ohio and 8,874 deaths.
