WOODSTOCK — The City of Woodstock has announced that two upcoming events in the Woodstock Summer Concert Series will be postponed until the 2021 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
City Council and Parks and Recreation Staff say they believe the cancellations are warranted due to the difficulty in ensuring adequate social distancing at the Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater.
The Ultimate Queen Celebration starring Marc Martel on July 31 and the Steep Canyon Rangers concert on August 8 will both be postponed until the 2021 season.
City Council has been evaluating and discussing this decision since the State of Emergency began in March.
“We do not take this decision lightly. City leaders regret disappointing our citizens who look forward to these events every year,” Woodstock Mayor Donnie Henriques said “Like many other decisions we are making in regard to pandemic response, we are faced with finding a balance between protecting the public and our staff while maintaining quality of life in Woodstock.”
As of now, the Sept. 12 Black Jacket Symphony concert and the Oct. 30 Rumours concert are still scheduled to take place.
