Are events occurring in Cumberland Valley?
Yes, events are occurring, and Governor Wolf's newest order on October 9, 2020, increased gathering limitations in Pennsylvania, allowing more people to attend both indoor and outdoor events. Originally, indoor events were restricted to just 25 people, while outdoor events could have up to 250. Now, however, the maximum capacity will be determined based on a venue’s maximum occupancy. Mask wearing, social distancing, and other coronavirus mitigation orders from the state must still be followed.
Many of our partners continue to offer virtual classes, lectures, or exhibits. While we are doing our best to keep our online events calendar updated, you should visit each partner's website or Facebook page for the most current information on cancellations. We recommend you check with event organizers if you have questions about cancellations and/or refunds.
