Canal Music Fest canceled

TIPP CITY — The Tipp City Area Arts Council has announced that the 2020 Canal Music Fest has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The decision was a difficult one that was not taken lightly,” said Amy Barr, marketing and public relations. “The Canal Music Fest is a wonderful community event and one that we need more than ever right now, but the health and safety of our attendees, sponsors, vendors and volunteers must be our first priority.”

Barr said the event will return June 12, 2021, with the same line-up scheduled for this year, including Absolute Leppard Tribute and Absolute Journey Tribute.
