The Culpeper Air Fest Committee has pulled the plug on this year's Air Fest.
PRESS RELEASE: 2020 Culpeper Air Fest Cancelled
Culpeper VA, May 12, 2020 — After much discussion and deliberation, the Culpeper Air Fest Committee has decided to cancel this year’s Culpeper Air Fest in October. Due to the pandemic, the committee could not in good conscience pursue funding like we have in the past with so many local businesses being affected by closures or operating at reduced capacity. We are also very concerned about a possible reoccurrence of Covid-19 in the Fall. Without a vaccine currently available, we would not want to put anyone at risk at the largest annual gathering in Culpeper.
The Air Fest Committee would still like to continue with the STEM event some time this Fall, provided that the school systems agree that it could safely happen. We will provide more details on this planning once we get the information we need to proceed.
We know that this is disappointing news to all of our fans, supporters, and to our community, but we will come back next year with a renewed enthusiasm to put on another fantastic air show for Culpeper and the surrounding area. To everyone, please stay safe and healthy during these times.
Steve Nixon - Chairman
Culpeper Air Fest Committee
