Dear Allegany Garden Festival Vendors,
From my home to yours, I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are discovering ways to emotionally and physically adapt and manage your way through this very unsettling time.
With the disruption of life as we have known it, increased uncertainty, and more time to reflect, my focus has begun to shift toward thinking about the 5th Annual Allegany Garden Festival to be held in Allegany, NY on Saturday, June 6th. As we all know, the world is very unsettled. From day to day, our President and NY Governor update us with new mandates for our day to day lives. At this time, I am NOT cancelling the garden festival. I am hoping the conditions of this pandemic will change for the better of humanity, and the festival will be held as planned. I will let you know the decision on April 30th of either cancelling the festival or holding the festival as planned. IF the festival has to be cancelled, your money will be refunded.
I deeply appreciate your understanding and patience during this trying time.
Mary Linda Williams
Chairperson of the Allegany Garden Festival
