An urgent update regarding Art in the Burg schedule due to COVID-19

To our Art in the Burg community,

The health and safety of our patrons, artists, volunteers, and school district staff are of the highest priority. With the public health emergency declared by Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in accordance with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) guidelines recommending cancellation of all public gatherings of 250 or more people, we have made the difficult decision to cancel/suspend the 2020 Art in the Burg art fair scheduled for March 14.

This is a fast-moving situation and we are sure it leaves all of you with lots of questions.  We know we have them.  But unfortunately right now we’re afraid we may not have many answers.  We’ve tried to anticipate a few questions you might have and provide the best answers we can for you right now.

Q.  Is the 2020 Art in the Burg art fair cancelled completely?  Or will it be rescheduled?

We don’t know yet.  Given the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not able to make hard-and-fast decisions at this time. At this point, we cannot predict how long the outbreak will last, or when large gatherings will be viewed as safe by the DHS.

Q.  Are there possible dates identified for a reschedule art fair?

Not yet.  At this point, we do not know what our options are.  We will need to coordinate with Cedarburg High School to see if any dates remain available this school year.  And, obviously, we will need to have a better understanding of the extent of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Q.  When will you know more and update us?

At this point, the truth is we don’t know.  We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know as soon as we can.

We are sorry to have to make this announcement, and also to leave so many topics undecided.  We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to evaluate our options.

As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  At this difficult time, we are thankful to be part of the local arts community with all of you – our friends.  We look forward to welcoming you to Art in the Burg in the future.

Most sincerely,

Stacy Mose – Art in the Burg Liaison
