Due to the current crisis of Covid-19 cases across the country, and the high number of cases in our area, we have had many difficult discussions about whether we should hold our Clarendon Day street festival.
The safety of our community is of the utmost importance. and we do not feel we can ensure everyone's health and safety with our traditional format. Consequently, we will hold a special event called "Clarendon Comes Together" with a variety of outdoor activities and virtual events throughout the day, to support our neighbors, our businesses, and our front line workers. There will be a special raffle of unique items and experiences, live concerts, a virtual marketplace, and a donation drive for our local non profits. There will also be several family friendly activities, including a scavenger hunt and chalk art contest.
Even though we are not able to hold Clarendon Day in the same way that we have for the past 25 years, we promise to put on an event that will embrace the spirit of our community,
Event Date: September 26, 2020 from 11am to 6pm
