The nonprofit has confirmed that long-running festivals, including the Main Street Festival, Pumpkinfest and Dickens of a Christmas, will take place in person in 2021.
Foundation officials said the HFWC is also working to add virtual elements to each event, which will reach a wider audience of people.
“Before we made the hard decision to cancel all 2020 events, we explored a number of new virtual platforms and online experiential components which we are excited to incorporate in 2021 and future festivals,” HFWC CEO Bari Beasley said in an announcement. “Our hope is to not only offer the public festivals attended by hundreds of thousands of people, but also extend access to our community’s cultural celebration to people everywhere. We hope both locals, visitors, downtown merchants, entertainers, and craft vendors can get an early start on planning for 2021.”
Dates for four confirmed events are listed below.
Main Street Festival: April 24-25, 2021
Heritage Ball: Oct. 2, 2021
Pumpkinfest: Oct. 30, 2021
Dickens of a Christmas: Dec. 11-12, 2021
