The 2020 Gueydan Duck Festival has been canceled.

The festival, set for August, was canceled following a number of (virtual) meetings and discussions among the board of directors, a Facebook post states.

"After much deliberation, and with very heavy hearts, the Festival Board has made the very hard decision to cancel the 2020 Duck Festival," the post states.

All 2019 royalty has agreed to continue to serve throughout this year, and preparations already have begun for the 2021 festival, the post states.
