After being postponed due to the coronavirus in March, the Chandler Chamber of Commerce announced May 7 that the 32nd annual Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival will be rescheduled to Halloween weekend—Oct. 30 through Nov. 1—at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler.

The event, organized by the Chandler Chamber and Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations, was originally scheduled to take place March 13-15 but was postponed just hours before the gates were set to open due to swelling concern around the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement came on the heels of President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration.

“We are very excited to be able to announce the new dates of the Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival,” said Terri Kimble, President and CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, in a news release. “The fall dates offer up potential fun surprises and it promises to be one of the best festivals yet.”

Previously purchased tickets will be honored at the new date. Information regarding ticket sale, musical acts and attractions will be announced soon, according to a news release. The Ostrich Festival will reopen applications for local food, commercial and non-profit vendors to participate in the festivities.
