Snellville Days canceled due to COVID-19 concerns

Press release from the City of Snellville

SNELLVILLE – The city’s popular two-day event Snellville Days has been canceled due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“With so many festival vendors and participants closed or limited due to virus-related restrictions it became unlikely we would be able to stage a festival with the normal number of activities we like to offer at Snellville Days,” said City Manager Butch Sanders. “At this point in time, April 1, we have no idea how much longer citizens will be impacted by COVID-19 and we cannot take any chances with putting people at possible risk. That is why the city had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel Snellville Days for this year.” 

The Festival was originally planned for May 2 and 3, but all COVID-19 health recommendations have ended large gatherings such as the thousands that visit Snellville for the festival. Given the long-term planning and complex logistics needed to stage the event, a back-up date is not feasible for 2020.
