Due to the current pandemic and uncertainty of what lays ahead, organisers have taken the hard decision to cancel this year’s as “it’s not fair to put peoples lives at risk”.
In a statement released on Friday, organisers said:
“We were hoping to move Riverfest 2020 to a date in September, having cancelled the event in May.
“Looking at the current evidence it would be unwise to hold a public gathering of this size at this time.
“Our charity’s aim is to help people and that is our number one priority.
“We wish to keep the public, our staff and volunteers safe.
“Thank you for understanding…”
Riverfest aims to come back again in 2021.
