Milwaukee Brewers cancel annual "Brewers on Deck" festival amid ongoing pandemic
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Brewers announced that the annual winter festival, Brewers on Deck, will not be staged in 2021 amid uncertainty related to hosting events this fall and winter, according to a news release.
According to officials, planning for the fan festival is extensive as the event brings together thousands of fans under one roof to build excitement for the upcoming season. The decision was made with consideration for the health and safety of the community.
“It’s impossible to know at this time what restrictions may be in place that would require a different footprint or format for Brewers On Deck in January,” Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger said. “It takes many months of lead time for our staff to plan and execute the event, and with so many uncertainties we unfortunately have to make this decision now.”
