On behalf of the Board of The Carnation Festival Inc, I am writing to inform you that the 51st Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival has been cancelled. Due to the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus and its affect on the city of Wheat Ridges’ many departments that help us so much and the impending budget shortfalls that they will face, we have made this decision to relieve any stress to the great employees in all of the city’s departments.
We are eager, as many of you surely are, to be together once again as a community and celebrate this great community, but public safety is, and always be, our top concern. We promise that we will work diligently on future festivals and events while keeping our fiduciary and personal responsibilities to our friends and neighbors here in Wheat Ridge.
Joseph E. DeMott
Board Chair and Festival Manager
