Dean Anderson, Vicksburgfest board 2019 president, sent the following email to the Vicksburg Daily News concerning Riverfest 2020:
We would like to thank the citizens and businesses of Vicksburg for your support of Vicksburgfest (formerly Riverfest) over the years. There are no plans for a 2020 event as we take a step back to re-evaluate the event. We encourage the community to support other volunteer-led events that impact the economy of our city like Vicksburg Second Saturday, which is held the second Saturday of the month featuring live music and family-friendly activities in the downtown district.
Thank you to all of our current and past board members, volunteers, city workers and sponsors that have always been supportive of our goal to encourage locals and tourists alike to enjoy our city’s amenities through art and music.
