Roberts Cove Germanfest canceled, COVID-19 concerns
The executive committee for the 26th Roberts Cove Germanfest planned in October of 2020 has announced the festival held in Roberts Cove each year has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We have debated over the last few weeks about what should happen and have decided, given the government and Diocesan restrictions, that canceling is our best course of actions at this time,” a news release states.
The festival which is held in October was scheduled for Oct. 2 and 3. The executive committee says that they have an obligation to ensure a safe environment for their most vulnerable members, along with visitors and volunteers that travel to the festival each year.
Germanfest is held the first full weekend of October on a yearly basis on the grounds and surrounding areas of St. Leo IV Catholic Church in Roberts Cove.
