PHOENIXVILLE, PA — The Borough of Phoenixville, Phoenixville First and local community event organizers have been working collectively on the status of the Temporary Community Events within Phoenixville Borough.
Due to the social implications of large-scale events during this time of National Emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and following the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Borough of Phoenixville has made the decision to cancel or postpone Temporary Community Events scheduled from April 1st through mid-May.
Event changes include:
- A Whole Lot of Lulu: Vintage Market – April 25, 2020, rescheduled for June 13, 2020.
- First Friday – May 1, 2020, canceled but new date added for November 6, 2020.
- Spring Food Truck Festival – May 2, 2020, canceled. Fall Festival October 3, 2020.
- Dogwood Festival and Parade – May 13-16, 2020, canceled but will return in 2021.
This decision follows increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus and the emergency declarations from Governor Wolf, County Commissioners, and the Phoenixville Mayor.
The Borough of Phoenixville does not believe they could properly sustain social distancing protocol within the allotted event space and adequately provide a safe and enjoyable event experience to all residents and visitors, including corporate and community partners.
Borough officials state they have made this decision to provide festival vendors, volunteers, and the general public adequate notice of the cancellation and they are actively discussing other ways for the community to come together through currently scheduled and possibly newly scheduled events later this year.
