**July 15, 2020 – The Town of Avon cancels all AvonLIVE!, Special Edition AvonLIVE! and Lakeside Cinema free concert and film event series effective immediately.**
Eagle County Commissioners and Eagle County Public Health Department expressed concerns this morning about rising Covid-19 cases and large gatherings. The decision to cancel events is in response to a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases in Eagle County along with an increase in the positive test rate. “I deeply regret cancelling Avon’s free concert and film event series,” says Eric Heil, Avon Town Manager, “but there is no other responsible choice considering the recent sharp increase in Covid-19 cases and the risk to school re-opening plans and risk to keeping our businesses open.”
Avon is getting ready for another great summer! Our top priority is the health and safety of our residents and visitors. This summer will offer all the same great outdoor recreation activities in Nottingham Park and the surrounding area along with some new twists, including local music concerts, temporary art displays, small scale community events and surprise and delight events that will be uniquely Avon in style. We love summer and can’t wait to share it with you in the Heart of the Valley!
