CANCELLED - Parke County Covered Bridge Festival 2020

On August 17th, Monday afternoon the Parke County Commissioners met during a regular commissioner meeting and voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Covered Bridge Festival.

The Commissioners all commented on the inability to enforce social distancing, the wearing of face masks and other guidelines. One issue the commissioners expressed would be enforcing health guidelines for hundreds of thousands of festival goers.

As the festival was set to take place from October 9th through the 18th, 2020, Parke County Commissioners said that there would be no transient merchant licenses issued and the health department will not issue any food vendor licenses.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Parke County looks forward to seeing you back at next Covered Bridge Festival of 2021 during October 8th thru 17th.
