This year's New Iberia Beneath the Balconies event has been canceled due to COVID-19, the Iberia Preservation Alliance announced Thursday, July 23.

The Alliance says they made the decision to cancel amid concerns for the health of their performers, volunteers and the community.

The New Iberia Beneath the Balconies event has been ongoing for 10 years and brings people together for an afternoon on New Iberia’s historic Main Street to hear performances from musicians and actors from across Acadiana.

"The Alliance and the Balconies committee would like to thank the public, sponsors, and volunteers, without whom this event would not be possible, for their ongoing support," said Pat Kahle, executive director of Shadows-on-the-Teche. "We are already making plans for the 2021 Beneath the Balconies when hopefully we can all once again enjoy a Sunday afternoon of great performances in downtown New Iberia."
