COVID-19 PANDEMIC FORCES CANCELLATION OF
REMAINING 2020 COMMUNITY EVENTS PROMOTED BY
MEDFORD BUSINESS ASSOCIATION and MEDFORD CELEBRATES
The Medford Business Association (“MBA”) and Medford Celebrates Foundation, Inc. (MCF) jointly announced that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of the remaining 2020 events that the organizations had hoped to stage, specifically this year’s editions of the Medford Oktoberfest and Music Festival and the Dickens Festival.
Both non-profit organizations had hoped to combine aspects of the previously cancelled Art, Wine Music Festival and Classic Car Show and the July 3rd Medford Celebrates-produced Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks with the September 19 Oktoberfest, and the MBA was working toward staging the Dickens Festival on December 5. However, the ongoing public health crisis—most importantly ensuring the health and safety of the community--prevent either event from taking place.
The trustees of both sponsoring organizations are disappointed, but look forward with the hope that they will be able to stage these and other traditional Medford community events in 2021. In the meantime, we are thinking of you and look forward to the time when we can be together again.
