SCHENECTADY – Schenectady County SummerNight has joined a litany of other summer events this year and has been cancelled over ongoing coronavirus concerns, the county announced Thursday.
The event has gone on over 15 years and had been scheduled for July 10.
But officials Thursday announced that the event will not go on this year.
“Unfortunately, the pandemic makes it impossible for large-scale events, like Schenectady County SummerNight, to safely take place,” Schenectady County Legislature chair Anthony Jasenski said in a statement. “We look forward to once again showcasing downtown’s dramatic transformation to thousands of visitors from the area and beyond when we host the Capital Region’s biggest block party next year.”
Many other summer events have cancelled over the pandemic. The Altamont Fair also recently announced it would not go on this year, marking the first summer without an Altamont Fair since World War II.
