Concerts in the Park
May 18, 2020
The Grants Pass & Josephine County Chamber of Commerce has been carefully
following COVID-19 updates and the impact it will have on our 2020 Concert in the Park
series. Due to regulations regarding mass gatherings from the
Governor’s Office and the ongoing COVID-19 safety concerns,
we have decided to cancel Concerts in the Park for 2020.
We are deeply saddened that we will not have a 2020 Concert in the Park series but will
be planning for an even better 2021 season. The safety of our community and event
attendees is a major concern and at this time, we decided this was the best decision.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers that have continued to support this
event as we were entering our 34th year of bringing a free family fun event.
A big thank you to our title sponsor Evergreen Federal Bank!
The Chamber and all our business members are paying close attention to
developments regarding re-opening Oregon’s hard-hit economy and the challenges
ahead as we restart. We will continue to advocate for you,
our businesses, and our community. As hard as it has been, our community has
pulled together to stay safe and practice responsible physical distancing.
We are looking forward to a great 2021 Concert in the Park season.
Please stay safe and healthy.
