At this time last year, we fully expected to be able to hold the 20th anniversary of the Sylvan Circle Tour in 2021. We had delayed the application period to start on May 10 in the hope that we could see conditions that gave us assurance of holding a safe and successful in-person tour.

Regretfully at this time, we believe there are many COVID related factors which will not allow us to do so.

We understand the negative financial impact that cancelling the tour will have, not only on local artists and artisans, but also on retail locations along the route that benefit from the tour.

However, we believe that this is the only reasonable and responsible decision. We fully expect to be able to plan, organize, and host a highly-anticipated and successful tour in 2022.

On behalf of the Sylvan Circle Tour committee, please stay safe!
