The annual Alliston Potato Festival, which was set to be held on Aug. 6-8, has been cancelled for the second year in a row, organizers announced on their website.
The ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic led to the cancellation. Last year it was also cancelled due to the pandemic.
The festival was set to celebrate its 47th year. It is held every year in the southern Ontario community of Alliston. It attracts thousands to the town each year and is a staple of the town’s local economy.
Festival organizers plan to hold the event in 2022 on Aug. 6-8.
