2021 SPRING CHICKEN FESTIVAL CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19
CANCELED FOR 2021
The 2021 Spring Chicken Festival of Siler City, North Carolina will again not take roost due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic and out of the safety of all festival participants and community members. In response to directives from the State of North Carolina Governor Executive Order 195 Section 5.1 limiting mass gatherings, including festivals, the Town of Siler City has decided to cancel the 2021 festival – originally scheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2021 -- and begin planning the 2022 festival.
“The decision to cancel the 2021 festival is out of an abundance of caution as the safety of all participants remains a top priority for the Town of Siler City” says Jack Clelland, Parks and Recreation Director. While festival organizers explored alternative options for offering the event, the decision to cancel in 2021 was made due to the size of the event, the vast number of stakeholders involved, and the length of planning required to successfully implement this event. While future guidelines and restrictions are unknown, the Town wants to ensure the festival remains a memorable, organized, and safe event for all involved for years to come.
