In light of Governor Brown’s May 7th Plan for Rebuilding a Safe and Strong Oregon that states large gatherings and events will not be allowed through September, and with the desire to keep artists and community members safe, the Corvallis Fall Festival Board of Directors made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Corvallis Fall Festival scheduled for September 26th & 27th.
"This was not an easy decision to make. Corvallis Fall Festival believes that the health and safety of its artists, volunteers, and community members take precedent," says the Fall Festival Executive Director Deb Curtis. "With the constantly changing nature of the Covid-19 situation and with respect for the concerns of artists, sponsors, and community members, we feel it is in everyone's best interest to cancel this year's event."
Earlier this Spring the Corvallis Fall Festival Board of Directors canceled the Play, Corvallis, Play project due to the same concerns. Play, Corvallis, Play places pianos in public places around Corvallis for a month each summer. Watch for its return in 2021!
Community members can support the return of the Corvallis Fall Festival in 2021 by sending donations or by purchasing Fall Festival memorabilia, such as vintage t-shirts and posters, canvas tote bags, and note cards. Donations can be sent to the Corvallis Fall Festival, 582 SW Adams Ave., Corvallis, OR 97333. Items for sale and purchase information can be seen on the Corvallis Fall Festival website.
The Fall Festival is a well-loved Corvallis tradition and one of the largest arts and crafts fairs in Oregon. Corvallis Fall Festival looks forward to hosting the event again next year on September 25 & 26 when it will be celebrating 48 years of connecting artists and the community.
