For the second year in a row the Portage Potato Festival Committee has made the decision to cancel the festival due to the ongoing pandemic, the organization says in a Facebook post. However, they are looking at virtual opportunities this year instead.

“It wasn’t an easy decision, but the committee felt it was for the best this year. We can’t wait until 2022 to celebrate Plappy’s 16 birthday! Stay tuned for some fun on our page this summer. Hope to bring some of the festival fun virtually this year,” the post says.

The festival was scheduled to take place on Aug 13 to 14, 2021 in Portage la Prairie, Man.
