The 2020 Troy Strawberry Festival has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Troy Strawberry Festival, Inc. Board of Directors announced today that based on an abundance of caution it will cancel the 2020 Festival presented by Kettering Health Network.
“We extend our sincere appreciation to the members of the Festival committee as they prepared for the festival over the past year as well as our non-profit organizations, arts and craft vendors, performers and sponsors who were primed to celebrate with us,” said Linda Roth, Chairman of the 2020 Troy Strawberry Festival. “Our priority continues to be the health and safety of our volunteers, guests and all Festival supporters and as such we are following the recommendations of national and global health experts.”
The 2020 Troy Strawberry Festival was scheduled for Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7. Roth stated, “Ultimately, the Festival is committed to providing a fun, family friendly festival that supports our local non-profits. We are looking at ways we can do that over the coming weeks and months.”
The Troy Strawberry Festival was founded in 1977 as a community festival for the purpose of raising funds for local non-profits. The mission of the Troy Strawberry Festival is to create a vibrant and welcoming festival experience which results in positive recognition and economic impact for the Troy Community and for local non-profit organizations.
