press release from the city of snellville

SNELLVILLE – Snellville Tourism and Trade has suspended all events through October with the exception of the Farmers’ Market and Food Truck Friday events due to the spike in COVID-19.

“Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and rise in hospitalizations, we feel it is important to keep the health and safety of our citizens and visitors first and foremost,” STAT Executive Director Kelly McAloon said. “We feel that we cannot properly social distance at our concerts and larger events and are taking the advice of Gwinnett Newton Rockdale Health Department doctors who suggest not to have large gatherings of people, which can spread the virus, even outdoors.”

The following events will be canceled until 2021:

Snellville Concert Series (Aug. 22, Sept. 26 and Oct. 10)

Star Spangled Labor Day (Sept. 5)

Taste of Snellville (Sept. 12)

Fall Festival (Oct. 24)

“Please do your part, wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands,” McAloon said.
