To Our Elizabeth Celtic Festival Family,

Today, the Elizabeth Celtic Festival Executive Board met to discuss the possible 2021 festival.

We acknowledge the strong desire to return to festivals and the boost in morale that our event could provide. We explored the concerns the safety of our beloved Celtic community, of event insurability, the fiscal and labor responsibilities for our event as well as for those small businesses which join us each year. We examined the recent pattern of COVID safety restrictions regarding gatherings as well as the projected immunization distribution schedule.

It is with a heavy heart that we have voted to once again cancel the festival for the 2021 season. It is our hope that by taking this step we will be able to continue to weather this most difficult time until this pandemic has passed.

We thank everyone for understanding and wish everyone well and to remain safe. See you in 2022!

Slainte mhath!
