Snellville cancels most events through October

More bad news thanks to COVID-19. Snellville Tourism and Trade has cancelled all city events through October with the exception of the Farmers’ Market and Food Truck Friday events.

"Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and rise in hospitalizations, we feel it is important to keep the health and safety of our citizens and visitors first and foremost," STAT Executive Director Kelly McAloon said. "We feel that we cannot properly social distance at our concerts and larger events and are taking the advice of Gwinnett Newton Rockdale Health Department doctors who suggest not to have large gatherings of people, which can spread the virus, even outdoors."

Canceled events include the Snellville Concert Series (Aug. 22, Sept. 26 and Oct. 10), Star Spangled Labor Day (Sept. 5), Taste of Snellville (Sept. 12), and the Fall Festival (Oct. 24).

"Please do your part, wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands," McAloon said.
