Summer Events Canceled In North Adams
After careful consideration, the City of North Adams has made the decision to cancel all annual summer events through Labor Day. This includes the Concerts at Windsor Lake series, Movies Under the Stars at Colegrove Park, the Eagle Street Beach Party, Downtown Celebration, and the Motorama Car Show.
North Adams Mayor Tom Bernard said
I know this is a disappointing announcement. Our summer events bring people together to spend time with friends and neighbors, and to celebrate the sense and spirit of community that we hold so dear here in North Adams, Like so many other communities, we’re making this tough decision in the interest of public health and in light of current COVID-19 guidance. We intend and hope that all annual public events and series will resume as normal in 2021, following a safe and healthy recovery from COVID-19.
The City has yet to decide the status of fall events like the Fall Foliage festival and parade. Hopes are high that those events will be able to take place with appropriate precautions in place.
The anticipated North Adams 125th Celebration has yet to be rescheduled, but will likely be pushed to late 2020 or summer 2021. Ensuring the health and safety of residents and visitors will be our primary concern in making these scheduling decisions.
