Dear Taste of the Catskills Friends,
We are saddened to announce that we are forced to cancel Taste of the Catskills Festival in 2021. We have been planning to host the festival and have been working diligently toward that end. However, too many factors are working against us. As two local families that run small businesses, the Covid pandemic and resulting shutdowns have hit our businesses hard. Firm commitments from past sponsors and vendors, increased Covid cases, and staffing issues make the festival too big an undertaking and financial risk for us to move forward with confidence this year. We do not want to disappoint with a less than stellar event. Please keep Taste of the Catskills in your hearts and minds and look forward to joining us in 2022 as we begin planning for the best festival yet. Please stay safe and healthy. Kind regards from the Wilsons and Shaws.
