“I would like to thank all of the committee members for volunteering to sit on the committee and for the hours they have put in to date. For the health of everyone, the committee unanimously supports cancelling this year’s event. Thank you to everyone for their patronage over the last 10 years, and we look forward to seeing you next Summerfest.” – Bill Gibson – Summerfest Committe Chair.
On the recommendation of Town staff and the Summerfest Committee, and following public health best practices and guidelines, Pelham Town Council voted to cancel Pelham’s marquee event, Summerfest. The decision, made Monday, May 4, during the regular meeting of Council, is a result of public health concerns and estimations of what will be prohibited in terms of gatherings and physical distancing come mid-summer.
