The organizers of the Virigina-Highland Summerfest have decided to cancel the Festival for 2021. “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Summerfest,” said Leah Matthews, festival co-chair. “With rising cases of COVID-19 in Georgia, including Fulton County, it would be irresponsible to hold a large festival at this time. Although Summerfest takes place outdoors, it draws significant crowds. Typically, that is a good thing, but not during the pandemic.”

The Festival was due to take place Sept. 25-26, 2021. 

The organizers are planning an originally planned smaller fundraiser - A Night Out for John Howell Park

John Howell Park, Virginia Highland
