Lincoln Arts Festival board cancels July and August events

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 7:15am

    The Lincoln Arts Festival Board of Directors regrets to announce it will not be holding its scheduled events for July and August 2020. The July events scheduled at the Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor were Jazz Church Service and Edgewater Duo with Dean Zhang. August events at the Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor were Danny Lyons, Bell Ringer and Lincoln Festival Chorus concerts. The Arts and Yachts Exhibition and Sale at Hodgdon Yachts on Southport has also been cancelled.

    As is the case with so very many local, regional and state arts presenters, this decision is based on the realities faced with social distancing requirements and size of gatherings indoors projected at least to the end of August, health and safety of presenters, attendees, facilitators, and self-quarantine regulations for anyone entering the state of Maine. Our wish is for everyone to have a safe and healthy 2020 summer season and a bountiful and healthy 2021
