2020 Red River Wine & Beer Festival Cancellation:
Following Governor Abbott's declaration of a state-wide public health disaster and President Trump's declaration of a national emergency, both related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and wishing to do our part to control potential spread of the disease, the Senior-Junior Forum has decided to cancel the 2020 Red River Wine & Beer Festival.
A tremendous amount of work has gone into preparing for this event, and we are all aware of the negative impact this will have on the vendors that participate, as well as the charities the benefit from this event. However, this is a unique situation and we must put the welfare of our community first.
For those that have already purchased tickets, you may call 940-642-8420 for a refund. We are disappointed that the 2020 festival has been cancelled, but we hope that you will make plans to attend next year on March 27, 2021.
