FunFest by The River ... See moreSee less

A difficult decision has been made to cancel Fun Fest for 2020. The safety of our community and at-risk populations is our top priority. FunFest was scheduled for July 23-25, 2020, just 19 days after the State of Indiana is expected to re-open at stage 5 on July 4th. At stage 5, the CDC is stating that "social gatherings of over 250 people may take place following the CDC social distancing guidelines." It would be very difficult to promote and police social distancing at a community festival such as FunFest. With the exception of a few July 4th celebrations, all festivals in our surrounding area have cancelled for the months of June and July. Though the festival is canceled, Manchester Alive, with the help of many volunteers, will continue to look at opportunities to still celebrate North Manchester in 2020 and plan for larger celebrations in 2021. Stay tuned for possible Fall celebrations! Thank you for your understanding, patience and support! -Manchester Alive Board of Directors
