The decision has been made regarding the 50th Annual “New Boston Pioneer Days” for 2020, and due to the pandemic, there will be no festival this year.
Release from officials:
This morning the Board of Directors met in a special called meeting to hear from Pioneer Days officials. Here is the official statement from the Chairman:
After lots of consideration of the events going on at this time, it is with a heavy heart that I, as Chairman of the Pioneer Days Festival, must make this decision.
I have studied, prayed, and discussed this situation with co-chairman Kelley Branson. With the stipulations that Governor Abbott has placed on the state of Texas, we do not see any possible way of putting on a festival of the same caliber we have had in the past. Due to deadlines for certain events approaching rapidly, we are cancelling the 50th Annual Pioneer Days Festival at this time.
Thank you all for the work you have already put forth, we hope you support our decision and continue to work with us in the future.
Pioneer Days Chairman
