Lodi Street Faire Postponed Until June
In light of Governor Newsom’s Stay-at-Home order that went into effect Thursday, March 19, the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to postpone the Lodi Street Faire on Sunday, May 3, 2020 to maintain the safety of our staff, volunteers, and community as a whole.
The tentative date for the rescheduled Lodi Street Faire is Sunday, June 28, 2020 in Downtown Lodi- dependent solely on the state of affairs regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. President and CEO of the Lodi Chamber Pat Patrick stated, “Everyone needs to do their part to slow the spread of this pandemic. This is the Lodi Chamber doing our part for our community. Safety is our number one priority.” It is the Lodi Chamber’s hope that the postponed date will also allow vendors- like the ones who frequent the Lodi Street Faire and Farmers Market- a place to interact and sell their products. Their livelihoods depend on these forms of revenue and the Chamber will do its best to see the event through. Events Manager Karen Cannon stated, “We want what’s best for everyone, and I know the vendors we work with are happy about us postponing this event and not cancelling. It is a source of revenue for them, one that they are going without these next few months.”
Vendors have until June 10, 2020 to cancel and receive a refund (minus the administration fee) on their vendor booth. After June 10, 2020, the only refunds given will be if the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce has to further postpone or cancel the Lodi Street Faire due to COVID-19 regulations, and no alternative date for the Street Faire is made.
We also would like to remind our members, staff, community at large that this statewide stay-at-home mandate should be taken seriously for these next few weeks so that we can get back to business as usual. It is something we know will have lasting impact on the small business community, and we are working diligently to find solutions for our small businesses so they may remain open.
