"The pandemic effects on the planning process is significant, the guidance from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health as well as the current situation with the Governor’s orders, make it impossible to continue to hope that things would change on time to hold our festival," a news release from the Tall Timber Days Festival Committee said.

"Decisions needed to be made now in order to secure our vendors, entertainers, music, parade floats, etc. and we were forced to look at it from the view that the sacrifices being made to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic will not allow us the confidence to proceed with the planning process," the news release adds.

The news release says all vendors and participants are being notified.  

Next year's event is scheduled for August, 6, 7, 8.
