Beaver County was dealt its first major blow for 2021, as PUSH Beaver County notified the County Commissioners that the Maple Syrup Festival has been cancelled for the second consecutive year.
At their weekly work session, Commissioner Jack Manning announced the unfortunate news from PUSH BC’s Regis Collins: “It is too tenuous given the current state of COVID, and given the ongoing restrictions of Harrisburg on the number of people in indoor facilities…they have decided to cancel. We are certainly hoping, in our conversations, that in 2022 we’ll start it back up.”
Manning added: “Disappointing, but I certainly respect their decision among all the uncertainty.”
This is the second year that PUSH Beaver County will have to wait to host its first Maple Syrup Festival after taking the reins from the Beaver County Conservation District after the 2019 event.
