It is with a heavy heart that the Bedford Blues & BBQ Festival announces the cancellation of it’s Labor Day 2020 event. This may seem early and many will be disappointed, but know that this difficult decision was made with great consideration for the event’s volunteers, vendors, partners, and the community.
The Bedford Blues & BBQ staff along with Bedford City Council decided it is their social responsibility to release these valued partners of any obligation to the festival. Bedford’s mission has always been to better the community, and a full cancellation will afford them the opportunity to focus all efforts on their own success and safety. Moreover, the City savings will go toward funding essential services and help ease the financial burden, now and in the future.
Rest assured, plans continue to move forward on the 2021 Bedford Blues & BBQ Festival.
On a final note, City Council, event staff and all Bedford employees wish to express a heartfelt THANK YOU, for all the support these last 11 years. Continue to follow Bedford Blues & BBQ Festival on social media as virtual options are discussed as a way to bring everyone the joy of Blues & BBQ in the coming months.
