Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Silver Lake Garden Club Festival has been canceled.

The annual summer event has typically happens on the third Saturday in July.

"I believe this is the first time a festival has been canceled, but I also believe it was the correct decision to make," said Mayor Bernie Hovey on the village’s web site.

He added the festival "will return in 2021, and I am sure it will be a great one."

In addition to the festival, Hovey said that because of the pandemic, the summer concerts at the village gazebo have also been canceled.
