In a press release from Executive Director Ashley Butcher from the Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce regarding the 2020 Bluegrass Festival:
The Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce, with the
recommendation of the City of Carl Junction, has made the very difficult decision
to cancel the Annual Bluegrass Festival, scheduled to be held the last
weekend of September 2020.
The Carl Junction Area Chamber Of Commerce sat down yesterday with
County Health ofﬁcials and Committee Members to discuss the likelihood of
moving forward with such a large event. The overall consensus was, COVID
numbers are still on the rise. The best option to keep our guests, staff,
volunteers and community members safe would be to cancel.
We look forward to a bigger and better Bluegrass Festival in 2021.
