FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Downtown Summer Concert Series Canceled Due to COVID-19
(Madison, S.D.) June 24, 2020- The Greater Madison Area Chamber of Commerce (GMACC) Staff and Board of Directors regret to announce due to the current situation with COVID-19 and following CDC Guidelines DownTown in MadTown, a summer concert series and family fun night, will not be returning to the 100 Block of N. Egan Avenue in 2020.
We are deeply saddened by this, but the health and well-being of our community members is the top priority. However, we have left an alternate option open if the situation changes. We continue to monitor the guidelines and recommendations daily and if we are able, we will hold a scaled down version towards the end of August. The decision on this will be made at a later time.
Executive Director Eric Hortness said, “We have been eternally grateful to the Madison Community for their support of this great event over the past two years. Our hope is to have some form of this event at the end of August, but we feel this was the right decision given the timeframe we have. There are a lot of unknowns right now, but the way our community comes together in times of uncertainty is the reason why Madison is not only a great place to work but also call home.”
