Sorry – There will be no events in 2020!
” With heavy hearts we must announce that the Corbett FunFest will not be holding any events in 2020.
We have held out hope that we would be able to pull something off; even if it was scaled back from the norm. Unfortunately it is now clear, and in hindsight probably has been for some time, that we must cancel our activities. With Governor Brown’s directive to cancel large gatherings through September, the school grounds being closed, and very slim chances of getting approval to close the roads for the parade we are painted into a corner. We also could not pull off our event without the massive volunteer efforts of our community, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s office, and the Citizen’s Patrol. With the schedules and availability of these groups in question over the coming months we are left with no other choice, and there is unfortunately no way for us to pull our events off safely.
This cancellation impacts all of the events; the Kiwanis pancake breakfast, parade, cruise-in, festival, and fireworks.
We hope everyone can find a safe and fun alternative to our hometown festivities and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Your Corbett FunFest committee
