We are extremely disappointed to announce that due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and gathering limitations set by the State of Colorado, the Red, White & You patriotic event scheduled to be held on July 3 has been cancelled.
We had no choice but to cancel this event because Red, White & You draws around 50,000 people to Clement Park and the surrounding areas. Those of you who have attended the event in the past know that people are packed in tight to enjoy the festivities, so to hold an event of that size most likely will not be permitted in July by the state and county health departments.
We realize that this cancellation will sadden many who look forward to Red, White & You each year, but protecting the health and safety of our families, friends, neighbors, employees and volunteers is our top priority.
Additionally, Red, White & You is 100% community funded, with no tax dollars spent. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has put a severe strain on our local business community and understand that sponsoring this event may not be fiscally viable at this time. Red, White & You is a large event, which takes a lot of time to produce and we’ve come to a point with contractors and vendors that a decision needed to be made in order to avoid costly penalties and cancellation fees on event expenses.
Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. We look forward to the day when we can all be together again.
