City of Carrollton Cancels 2020 Festival at the Switchyard

The City of Carrollton has made the difficult decision to cancel the 11th annual Festival at the Switchyard. While the event was not scheduled to take place until November 7, planning for the event takes a full year, and due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent budget concerns, it would not be wise to spend resources on an event that typically draws more than 40,000 people within a tightly confined site map, and therefore may not be safe to hold.

This decision helps to ensure that City resources can remain fully focused on delivery of critical services throughout the duration of the COVID-19 situation, while simultaneously helping to protect the health and wellbeing of Carrollton residents, visitors, and staff. 

As Carrollton's signature event, the City knows the Festival at the Switchyard has become a day families and businesses in our community look forward to all year, and we are grateful for the success of the event over the past 10 years. We are excited to continue that tradition in the future.
