28th Annual Marshfield Maple Fall Fest – CANCELLED
Sat, September 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Maple Fall Fest 2020 Has Gone Digital
It is with a heavy heart that the Visit Marshfield Board of Directors and Maple Fall Fest Committee must make the following announcement: Marshfield’s annual Maple Fall Fest, previously scheduled for September 19th & 20th, 2020 at Wildwood Park in Marshfield, has been canceled. After consulting with many partners, including vendors, potential attendees, the City of Marshfield, and Wood County Health Department, we believe that this is the best decision for the safety of our vendors, attendees, and overall community. With all the uncertainty and the specific timelines of festival planning, vital operational partnerships, and volunteer services, we needed to make this announcement now. The event typically features over 150 vendors featuring handmade arts and crafts, maple syrup, festival foods, entertainment offerings, and more. Annual festival attendance is estimated at 10,000 to 15,000 people over two days. With the unique nature of vendors travelling to Marshfield from over six states, selling craft and food items in such close quarters makes social distancing nearly impossible, as is following the guidelines and recommendations as outlined by the Wood County Health Department.
Visit Marshfield and the Maple Fall Fest Committee appreciate your support, patience, and understanding during this challenging time in our world. To help support our vendors and small businesses through this cancellation, we will now shift to a online campaign, showcasing our valued vendors and the unique handmade arts and crafts they traditionally sell at the festival. We are proud to show off vendors’ excellent wares in our online campaign in a safer manner starting in September 2020. We hope you will join us online in 2020 and look forward, as we are, to the future when we are back in person on September 18th & 19th, 2021, bigger and better than ever.
