We have received a lot of emails and phone calls about our 2021 Sugar Creek Arts Festival planning. This event is a real community highlight and has been identified as one of the top 100 Arts Festivals in the nation and the Pantagraph Reader's Poll chose our festival as the Best Community Event in our region. With an estimated 20,000 people attending over two days it is a hugely anticipated part of all of our lives.
It is our sincere hope to see you once again at the 2021 Sugar Creek Arts Festival. The resumption of our event is dependent Illinois being declared in Phase Five for the covid-19 virus. Much depends upon the public commitment to the available vaccines.
Because of the rapidly changing projections, we will be delaying our application and selection process as late as possible to ensure that all necessary steps are in place to provide a safe and successful event for all of our artists and stakeholders.
As a result, we are now moving our application deadline to June 11, 2021. our website will be updated to reflect this change in the coming days. If we need to reassess this date, we will keep you informed. This will provide us, our partners, and you, with the time we need to make sure it is safe and prudent to continue.
Last year we created a virtual festival, https://www.sugarcreekartsfestival.org/ , and we will continue to create and support this resource. Ideally this website will serve in tandem with our in-person event.
As we know more in the coming weeks, we will share our updates. Wish us all luck! We have missed you and hope to have a much better 2021 for everyone!
The Sugar Creek Arts Festival is now rated as the 100th Best Fine Arts Festival in the United States!
We are honored to so valued by our artists.
