March 12, 2020 — The Penticton Peach Festival statement regarding the recent ongoing developments on COVID-19:

As of now, we are full speed ahead in the planning for the 73rd annual Penticton Peach Festival, Aug. 5-9, 2020.

We will be monitoring the spread of the virus in the coming days and weeks. As the festival dates get closer, our Board of Directors will be discussing the situation with health officials on an ongoing basis. Be assured that we will not risk the health of our spectators, volunteers or performers.

With almost five months until the start of Peachfest, we are optimistic that lives will be back to normal long before August.
