City cancels Wells Fargo Red, White and Blue festival

June 16, 2020

City officials have canceled the annual Wells Fargo Red, White and Blue festival scheduled for July 4. The festival had already been pared down to the fireworks show, but a significant increase in the number of new COVID-19 cases in the community prompted a more in-depth review of the event logistics.

“We know how much families look forward to this event every year, so this is not a decision we made lightly,” said Angie Prosser, Director of Events and Cultural Affairs. “The health and safety of Greenville residents and visitors are our top priority, and given the number of people this popular event attracts, we determined that it would be impossible to ensure that attendees could maintain the recommended social distance.”
