Longview Wine Festival Rescheduled for October Because of Coronavirus
The 3rd Annual Longview Wine Festival, one of the Best Area Events by Locals Love Us benefiting the East Texas Alzheimer’s Alliance, has been postponed to October in the wake of novel coronavirus concerns.
The event, originally scheduled for April 25 at The Green in Longview, will move to October 17th. Festival Chair, Kristen Ishihara, cited concerns about the possible health risks because of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) spread. “The decision was not taken lightly or without consideration of many factors,” Ishihara said. “No doubt it will impact many people, but our top priority is to protect the health of the entire community.” Ishihara continued, “While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our 2,500 guests, volunteers, and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.”
Sponsorships, vendor booths, and ticket purchases will be honored at the rescheduled event. Refunds will be processed upon request by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
