It truly saddens us to make this decision, but on August 16 the PeaceWorks Kansas City Board of Directors determined that we do not feel we can safely proceed with our art fair on September 25-26, so we are cancelling the art fair this year. It will not happen virtually either as that just did not work for us in 2020 in spite of the great efforts of artist David Bayard.
We are concerned with forecasts that virus issues are only going to get worse through September. Most of our board and volunteers are in at-risk categories for the virus and we are concerned about our ability to staff the event safely. Sadly, the people of the states of Missouri and Kansas provide no comfort in their lack of willingness to take public health measures seriously.
