Out of an abundance of caution, given the serious threat of COVID-19 and the daily breaking news reports cautioning us all, with regret, the Pelham Art Festival Committee has decided to cancel the 34th Annual Pelham Art Festival scheduled for Mother’s Day weekend, May 8, 9 and 10, 2020.
In these unpredictable times, we must all appreciate the simple moments and cherish the deepest values: family, friends, love and health. We need to support each other the best way we can to stay safe.
So regretfully, we must cancel the Pelham Art Festival this year in the interest of having a much more successful show in 2021. So, save the date for next year! We look forward to seeing you on May 7, 8, 9, 2021! MORE
