It is with much regret that we must inform you that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Delaware Arts Festival Board of Directors has decided we must cancel the 2020 Festival.
Due to the logistics of location and the fact that this organization is totally managed by volunteers, postponing the festival to later in the year is just not an option. We have waited as long as we felt responsible to cancel, in an effort to stay positive amongst all the negative news surrounding this world health situation. The committee had planned what we thought would be a spectacular event with many new artists, entertainment and tremendous support from the local community and businesses. Our goal at this point is to look forward to next year to make it the best Delaware Arts Festival in history and hope you will join us in that effort! Rest assured, that all the booth fees will be returned in full in the soonest possible time. We can’t thank you enough for your support and patience during these uncertain times. In addition, all sponsorship monies will also be returned in full. That being said, I would like to explain a little bit about our festival as many of you may not know what the ultimate goal of the Delaware Arts Festival is.
We are a not-for-profit organization that promotes the visual arts in our local community. Each year we award $10,000 to local schools arts programs for special projects. In addition, we award scholarships, totaling $20,000, to three local high school seniors who are pursuing a career in visual arts to help with collage expenses. Because we all think it’s the right thing to do, we will continue to make those awards this year despite the cancellation of the festival. We hope you will keep us in mind as you put your 2021 festival schedule together. We are excited for things to get back to normal as soon as possible and begin our work on next years event. Again, I want to thank you all for your support and patience and look forward to seeing many of you next May 15th & 16th, in a healthier 2021!
Please take care and be safe out there!
