One of the biggest events that brought the Rochester community together has now been added to the list of cancellations due to Covid-19; Rochesterfest.  I heard over the weekend that this news was coming but got the official word this morning.

Brandon Helgeson, Rochesterfest executive director sent out a press release with the unfortunate news that Rochesterfest events that were scheduled from June 20th - 28th have been canceled.

With the health and safety of attendees and the community of greatest importance, this decision was made with careful deliberation. It’s a tough time for so many in our community and the event industry. That’s why, in cooperation with city officials and in collaboration with community event organizations, Rochesterfest is exploring efforts to provide our greater community with a festival to help heal and celebrate our city. - Brandon Helgeson, Rochesterfest Executive Director

I'm excited to hear what the city celebration will be that the Rochesterfest organizers are working on because I know we will all be ready to celebrate together once it is safe.
