The Apple Blossom Festival officially announced Wednesday there will be no celebration this year.
Organizers of the annual Wenatchee festival had held out hope for a shortened version of the festival, possibly in August.
They then began looking at a possible September harvest festival.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and still being in Phase 1.5 we cannot foresee this happening”, festival Administrator Darci Christoferson said in a statement.
The 101st Wasington State Apple Blossom Festival was was scheduled to start April 23 this year but was postponed as the state responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival board and staff will now turn its attention toward preparation for the 2021 festival, April 22-May 2, Christoferson said.
