Cedarburg announces dates for 2021 Wine & Harvest Festival
CEDARBURG, Wis. (CBS 58) --- Festivals of Cedarburg announced Wine & Harvest Festival will be back in 2021 after closing down in 2020 due to COVID-19.
The 48th free annual festival will take place in historic Cedarburg Saturday, Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“The last year and a half has been trying for everyone,” said Executive Director BJ Homayouni. “Many of us lost a lot, learned a lot and are hopefully coming out of the pandemic wiser and more empathic than we went in. We’re all relieved to be looking at better days, and getting back to planning festivals that bring us together as a community.”
Officials say they will continue to monitor safety regulations, but hopes the 2021 Wine & Harvest Festival will look like it has in the past, including full food court, several hundred artists lining the main street, a farmer's market, and live music at numerous stages around town.
Saturday's Great Pumpkin Growers Weight-off and Sunday's Giant Pumpkin Charity Regatta will also return.
