The Milton Historical Society has made the difficult decision to cancel the 46th annual Arts and Crafts on the Lawn event for 2020. Out of abundance of caution regarding COVID-19, the Milton Historical Society Board of Directors voted unanimously to cancel the event for this year. This difficult decision was not made lightly, and the board of directors understands the impact that not holding this event will have on the vendors who exhibit at the show, other organizations, local businesses and the community at large, but feel that doing what is in the best interest of the health and safety of all involved with the event was the responsible decision to make.
According to Milton Historical Society Executive Director Keighton Klos “The board and staff are obviously disappointed that this decision had to be made, but with the constantly changing landscape of health recommendations relating to COVID-19, we feel that it was the right decision. We are looking forward to coming up with alternative events to hold over the next 6 months to help offset the lost revenue created by the cancellation of this event, and we look forward to welcoming our wonderful vendors and guests back to our grounds for this event in August of 2021.”
The historical society staff will be working to reach out to vendors to notify them of the cancellation. There are no plans at this time to hold this event in a different format in 2020.
