MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee's largest one day street festival has been canceled due to COVID-19.

The organizers of Bay View Bash have made the decision to cancel their 2020 festival in order to protect volunteers and visitors.

The festival took to Facebook Monday to share the news, "Our mission is to support our community, and right now we feel the best way we can support one another is by not putting each other at risk for a potential wave two of COVID-19."

The organizers are now looking for new ways to raise money for local businesses as they struggle through the coronavirus pandemic.

They are also encouraging Bay View Bash fans to donate to local bars and restaurants in order to help them thrive.
