CHESTERTOWN — The board of Main Street Historic Chestertown has announced the cancellation of the nonprofit's annual winter event, Dickens of a Christmas, for 2020 because of COVID-19 concerns.
The holiday event was scheduled to take place Dec. 4 and 5.
“We do not see large gatherings in our future until some combination of a vaccine, testing and reliable treatment options is widely available," Executive Director Kay McIntosh wrote in a news release. "Main Street Chestertown will instead focus on brightening downtown for the winter season and supporting downtown shops and restaurants as they adjust to the new ways of doing business in this period of masks, sanitizing and social distancing. The Dickens planning committee will regroup for a best-ever event in 2021."
Main Street Historic Chestertown is an organization dedicated to fostering an inviting, diverse and prosperous downtown commercial district.
