After much thought, consideration and deliberation regarding RipFest 2020, the Eastland Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted to cancel RipFest, originally scheduled for October 3, 2020. This was not an easy decision as the pros and cons of hosting such a large event during the COVID-19 Pandemic were weighed heavily. The Chamber Board appreciates the community’s support and look forward to hosting this special event in October 2021!
RipFest is an annual event that draws thousands of attendees from our local and surrounding counties as well as attendees from larger urban areas. Due to limited space on our square, it would be impossible for vendors, participants, and attendees to properly social distance using the CDC guidelines.
Our top priority as the Chamber of Commerce is to advocate for our local businesses.We will continue to advertise on their behalf and work toward a solution that will promote tourism without having such an influx of people in one area. Stay tuned for more information!!
