Due to the ongoing concerns surrounding the contagious nature of the the COVID-19 virus, and after consulting local health officials and community leaders, the Board of Directors of New Melle Sports and Recreation, in agreement with our Festival Steering Committee, has elected to postpone our annual event.
The 2020 New Melle Festival will now be held August 13th, 14th and 15th. The Steering Committee has begun the process of transitioning our many featured activities and entertainers to our new date. As those arrangements are confirmed, they will be announced via Social Media.
The annual Kickball Tournament, hosted by our Festival Queen Candidates in memory of Trevor Joerling, has been rescheduled for July 24th. The second annual “Gizzard Run” will be held the morning of August 15th. The parade will also take place the afternoon of August 15th.
We will continue to provide information as we firm up details, such as vendors, activities, parade time, etc.
As always- we appreciate your support and look forward to seeing everyone at the Festival.
