Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, the Heart of the Rockies Salida Chamber of Commerce has canceled The Ninth Annual Salida Winefest set to take place on September 12, 2020 in Alpine Park. The cancelation is being done “In the interest of keeping the Salida Community safe and the uncertainties surrounding large gatherings.”
To keep the spirit of Salida Winefest alive, limited edition collectors’ posters will be available for purchase through the Salida Chamber of Commerce located at 406 West Highway 50.
In partnership with Sunday Lounge, local artist Jared Jacob designed the featured poster for this year’s event.
“The decision to cancel was, of course, fraught with emotions of disappointment for our vendors and for the town as well,” said Salida Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lori Roberts. “We simply had to look at the big picture and focus on the health and welfare for everyone involved.”
Roberts continued, “We applaud all our food vendors, artists, and wineries for doing their best with pivoting and reinventing however best they could, with ways to continue conducting business. The winefest, like our beer fest, serve as major fundraisers for the Salida Chamber, however we remain strong with the vigilance of our amazingly strong member businesses and spirit of the entire community. We have all worked hard to stay ahead of things and look forward to seeing you next year when we will be toasting our tenth annual.”
