We would imagine that this comes as no surprise, but our Programming Committee has decided to cancel this year’s festival. While we are able to host smaller gatherings during the Green Phase of re-opening in Pennsylvania, we are limited to 250 people on-site at a time – this total includes staff, vendors, entertainers, exhibitors, and volunteers. With the size of our event, we could easily hit our max capacity before any visitors arrive.
We realize that our event is not the only one that has canceled on you and that this impacts the community and for that, we are incredibly sorry. We understand the toll this is taking on your businesses. Here at Goodell Gardens, we’ve lost approximately 30% of our annual revenue because we have not been able to host private or public events.
Thank you so much for your understanding, and please mark your calendar for Sunday, September 12, 2021 and next year’s Homegrown Harvest Festival.
