The lack of funding, resources and related issues to organize, produce and present the festival this year is what prompted the cancelation, according to a press release.
“After much deliberation, the committee came to the conclusion that it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel this year’s event and began planning for 2022,” the release said.
They said the event requires many months of planning and resources to present a top-notch community festival. They hope to continue the tradition in the future.
The event was scheduled for Aug. 20 to 21 on the corner of Schoolhouse Road and Theatre Drive in Richland Township. Next year’s festival is tentatively planned for the same date and location.
