Perth – The Perth Lions Garlic Festival adds itself today to the list of upcoming events for the 2020 season that wasn’t. The announcement was posted on their Facebook page Friday afternoon.
“After a great deal of consideration and a lot of discussion, our club has decided to cancel the Perth Lions Garlic Festival scheduled for August 8th and 9th, 2020.
This cancellation was not made lightly, but the decision was reached by the need to keep our festival visitors, vendors and volunteers safe and well.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated health risks and social distancing measures currently in place, we feel it’s the right thing to do.
We want to express our sincere thanks to all our faithful vendors, dedicated visitors and volunteers, for your loyal support during our past festivals.
We look forward to seeing you at the Perth Lions Garlic Festival 2021.
