ACADIA PARISH — The 26th Roberts Cove Germanfest has been canceled.

The executive committee for the festival held in Roberts Cove each year make the decision due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"We have debated over the last few week about what should happen and have decided, given the government and Diocesan restrictions, that canceling is our best course of actions at this time," a release states.

The festival which is held in October was scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd. The executive committee says that they have an obligation to ensure a safe environment for their most vulnerable members, along with visitors and volunteers that travel to the festival each year.

They say that even with following the needed guidelines to allow the festival to happen, the committee does not believe the Germanfest would be an enjoyable experience.

"Therefore, it is better to postpone it until next year and allow us to make it the festival that you deserve!"
