(Farmington, MO) – The Farmington Chamber of Commerce released a statement on Monday regarding the future of the event stating,

“After careful consideration, and in light of ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, the Farmington Regional Chamber has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Country Days previously scheduled for June 5-7. The health and safety of our community, members and partners is our highest priority.

“Having spent the last six months preparing for the show with our advisory committees, entertainers, exhibitors, and event partners, we’re genuinely disappointed we are unable to safely host the festival at this time. Any payments received will be refunded within the next 30 days.

“We want to thank all our members and partners for their support, open discussions, and encouragement. As many people have reminded us, great things happen when the community comes together in uncertain times. We hope to come together in spirit now and in person soon.”

Country Days is one of the Parkland’s biggest summer attractions and has drawn crowds to downtown Farmington for over 40 years.
