Organizers have announced the cancellation of the 2020 Feast of the Strawberry Moon.

It was planned for June 13-14 on Grand Haven’s Harbor Island.

“In light of the events of the coronavirus and resulting safety measures and precautions taken by the nation and community, the West Michigan Historical Alliance has decided to cancel the Feast of the Strawberry Moon this year,” event organizer Kelly LaMore said in a press release. “Please join us next year for the Feast of the Strawberry Moon on June 12-13.”

The festival is a living history event that captures life along the banks of the Grand River in the 1800s, when Native Americans, French and British fur traders, and settlers made West Michigan their home while trading furs. The annual festival was originally put on by the Tri-Cities Historical Museum and is now hosted by the West Michigan Historical Alliance.
