At its regular monthly meeting, the Brush & Palette Club voted to cancel this year's Arts & Crafts Festival due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event is always held on the second full weekend in October.
The Club has been sponsoring the Arts & Crafts Festival continuously since 1951, and until this year has never had to cancel the two-day show.
It was unanimously agreed by members that it would be in the best public interest to cancel this year's festival, with hopes of bringing the event back for the weekend of Oct. 9-10, 2021.
The Arts & Crafts Festival, each year, is one of the largest weekends for visitors during Hermann's Oktoberfest.
