The City announced this week that the fall celebration of its semiannual Cottonwood Art Festival, scheduled for Oct. 3-4, and Huffhines Art Trails and Pawtoberfest, scheduled for Oct. 17-18, have been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

Planning for the events take several months and typically would already be underway to schedule food and art vendors, some of whom travel from across the country and even from around the world. With the unknowns regarding whether large gatherings will be allowed this fall, organizers had to make a call this week to cancel the events.
