It had been scheduled for June 27.

"With the unknown course of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated federal and state safety orders, it is unreasonable to host this annual event while ensuring the safety of the hundreds of volunteers who make the Festival happen and the thousands of people who generally attend," Executive Director Lee Stuart said in a press release.

They thanked those who have invested time and prayers into this year's festival, which is one of CHUM's largest fundraising events. 

CHUM hopes to bring the festival back on June 26, 2021.
