CEDARBURG — The 2020 Cedarburg Strawberry Festival has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival, which was scheduled for June 27 and 28, is one of the largest two-day events in Ozaukee County and has large economic impact on Historic Downtown Cedarburg.

“This was a difficult decision to make as our Board of Directors considered all the options put before them,” said Gordon Goggin, Festival President. The Board unanimously decided cancellation was the only responsible decision to make to ensure the safety of our community, attendees and participants.”

The board is now looking at other options to replace the festival and will provide updates as decisions are made.

According to a press release from the Board of Directions, "the Board of Directors and Festivals staff extends gratitude to all who help make Strawberry Festival successful: steadfast attendees, sponsors, participants, partners and especially volunteers."
