The City of Jeffersonville has canceled the remainder of its free summer concert series at the RiverStage including “Jeff Goes Country” on August 8th due to public health concerns related to COVID-19 virus and continuation of the social distancing order.
“The health and safety of our community is always the most important thing to us,” said Mayor Mike Moore. “We are very disappointed we won’t get to enjoy this year’s concert line-up on our riverfront. I hope everyone understands why we needed to make this difficult decision in this unprecedented time.”
The cancellation also includes the weekly “Twilight Cinema” series. Moore announced that the annual July 4th Parade will not take place this year due to the COVID-19 virus.
“We’re taking tremendous steps to return to some kind of normalcy under the Governor’s plan. Unfortunately, the recommendation to follow social distancing guidelines will likely continue through the summer,” said Moore. “It’s now become evident that having large scale public events such as concerts, movies and parades under those distancing restrictions would be significant, if not impossible challenge, without endangering the public health.”
