11th Annual Redbud Festival CANCELLED @ Dove Park (College Street)

11th Annual Redbud Festival CANCELLED @ Dove Park (College Street) | Dayton | Virginia | United States

Out of concern for public health and safety, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Redbud Festival.

We know that residents and visitors alike have been looking forward to the shopping, dining and entertainment that the festival provides as well as shopping with our local businesses. When we originally postponed from April to late June, we were hopeful that it would be enough time to feel safe in inviting thousands of people to Dayton.

Unfortunately, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to surge in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County area. Once the curve begins to flatten, a containment strategy for the region and the state will be put into place. We do not foresee it being advisable or responsible to have a large crowd in one place by June 20th.

We remain hopeful that the 41st Annual Dayton Days/Autumn Celebration will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 and we look forward to seeing the vendors and shoppers then.

In the meantime, please support local businesses and restaurants. It has been a very difficult time for small town businesses and they need our support! We invite you to visit downtown Dayton and The Dayton Market throughout the summer.

Follow our Facebook page(s) and those of our local businesses to stay informed on promotions, on-line shopping opportunities, openings and other information.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
