News Mar 23, 2020 by Mike Pearson Ancaster News

This year’s Ancaster Heritage Days festivities are still a go — for now. But things could change, given the rapidly evolving situation related to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

in a March 23 statement, Ancaster Heritage Days chair Aaron Gerrard said  the community festival is still planned for June 13.

“However, we recognize that in the weeks and months ahead, that may need to change,” he acknowledged.

The Heritage Days' organizing committee will provide updates as needed, Gerrard said.

“In the event that we are unable to proceed as planned, our goal is to work together with the Ancaster Business Improvement Area, our sponsors, our vendors, Councillor Lloyd Ferguson’s office, and the Ancaster community, in putting together an event as soon as possible to celebrate the easing of social distancing restrictions. We will all need to do our best to support our local businesses.”

Participants who have concerns or questions regarding their commitment to Ancaster Heritage Days 2020 are asked to contact the organizing committee through its website at www.ancasterheritagedays.com.

Gerrard said the committee will continue to follow municipal, provincial, and federal government guidelines for public gatherings and events. At the current time, events such as parades and outdoor festivals, are suspended indefinitely.
