Trinity Collaborative Inc. has canceled the Mayfest 2021 festival in the interest of public health and safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The collaborative’s statement:
“It is our social responsibility to continue to place the safety and wellbeing of our patrons, volunteers, vendors, partners and community as our top priority. This difficult decision was made with great care and deliberation after numerous meetings with public health officials. At this time, a gathering as large and populous as Mayfest negates the efforts to minimize the effects of COVID-19. The cancelation will help advance the health of our community, allowing for future opportunities to safely congregate and unite once again. We are enthusiastically planning the 50th anniversary of Mayfest on May 5-8, 2022. Now more than ever, we look forward to connecting people to the river, our parks and each other in a safe, welcoming environment.”
Trinity Collaborative Inc., formally known as Mayfest Inc., recently expanded the organization’s operations to produce other events and introduce new programs in addition to the annual Mayfest festival. Plans are underway for new, exciting developments that support the organization’s mission to raise and contribute funds for the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs.
