It is with heavy hearts and much discussion that our committee must announce that due to the COVID 19 virus, the Heart of Ohio USA Days Festival has to be cancelled.  The entire theme, entertainment schedule and so forth will be rolled over to 2021 on June 24th 25th and 26th. We think everyone will love our new, bigger and better festival! Our members continued to hold out hope that things would be better by now but as we all know, things have not improved to the point that we can make this happen. However, we are not yet cancelling our annual USA Days Car Show, set for September 13th.  We will continue to monitor the situation in order to make a determination by August 1st or thereabouts. If we find that we can make this happen it will take a lot of scrambling to get things in order as many things cannot be done far ahead of time but we promise to do our best! We would love volunteers with these tasks! We cannot make any promises at this time due to the world, country, and state being in this worrisome condition but if we are able to do the car show we would love to have some things for the children in the roadside park there, such as the Princess party, kiddie tractor pull, etc.  We do promise to do our best with these constrictions upon us but please don’t count on anything until we get farther down this long road!  Thank you for supporting our festival which is now 15 years old! We will continue to serve you in the future!  Keep supporting our local businesses and continue to stay safe by frequent hand washing, wearing masks, and social distancing!
