Trinity Collaborative Inc. has canceled the 2021 edition of the Mayfest festival in the overall interest of public health and safety due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The organizations said it its social responsibility to place the safety and wellbeing of its patrons, volunteers, vendors, partners and community as its top priority.
“This difficult decision was made with great care and deliberation after numerous meetings with public health officials. At this time, a gathering as large and populous as Mayfest negates the efforts to minimize the effects of COVID-19. The cancelation will help advance the health of our community, allowing for future opportunities to safely congregate and unite once again,” the announcement said.
Trinity Collaborative Inc. said the organization is “enthusiastically planning the 50th Anniversary of Mayfest, which will take place May 5-8, 2022. Now more than ever, we look forward to connecting people to the river, our parks and each other in a safe, welcoming environment.”
Trinity Collaborative Inc., formally known as Mayfest Inc., recently expanded the organization’s operations to produce other events and introduce new programs in addition to the annual Mayfest festival.
Plans are underway for new, exciting developments that support the organization’s mission to raise and contribute funds for the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs, the organization said.
