Alabaster CityFest 2021 has been canceled because of the coronavirus crisis.
The festival had been scheduled for June 5 on the grounds of Thompson High School in Alabaster. Last year’s event was also cancelled due to COVID-19.
The Alabaster Arts Council emailed WBRC this statement:
Much planning and promotion is required in intervening weeks to make CityFest the success it has been traditionally. “Though we had hoped to return in June 2021, there are still significant roadblocks to hosting successful events in the coming months, especially from a planning perspective,” says Adam Moseley, president of the Alabaster Arts Council. “We may be much further along in recovering from the pandemic by June, but CityFest preparation takes many months, and the COVID-19 crisis hasn’t allowed us to move forward with concrete plans.”
“To our sponsors, vendors and partners, we are grateful for your continued commitment to the Alabaster Arts Council and Alabaster CityFest, and look forward to working with you all again for other events that are made possible by your support, and the festival in 2022,” says Camille Herron, Arts Council Vice President.
The date set for CityFest 2022 is June 4.
