Officials with the Walker County Arts Alliance announced earlier this week via email that Art in the Park would be postponed due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

“Health and safety are a priority of the Walker County Arts Alliance. It has been decided by the festival committee to postpone the 2021 Art in the Park due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns. We will continue to evaluate public health progress with the possibility of holding the festival in the Fall of 2021,” the nonprofit announced this week in an emailed newsletter.

The popular local event, normally held in May, attracts approximately 80 artists from around the Southeast each year.

Organizers are hopeful that the event can be rescheduled for the Fall.
