Another Twin Cities tradition has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 54th annual Edina Art Fair was supposed to start the first weekend in June, but on Friday, organizers announced their decision to push it back to August:
"We feel that this was the best decision to ensure the safety and success of our artists, vendors, and guests," the fair said in the Facebook post.
It will now be held August 21-23, the third weekend of the month. Organizers had been mulling those dates as an alternative for almost a month, as evidenced by a March Facebook post giving fair-goers a heads up that the schedule may change.
The Edina Art Fair joins other spring and summer events impacted by the coronavirus in Minnesota.
Meanwhile, Twin Cities Pride has been postponed as organizers work to find an alternate date.
In Duluth, the popular Grandma's Marathon has been canceled outright due to COVID-19, not to return until 2021.
As for the ultimate summer tradition in the state, the Minnesota State Fair, its fate could be up in the air.
Late last month, Gov. Tim Walz said it's "probably too early" to make a call on whether the fair proceeds as scheduled, adding that "it would be my hope that by the time we get to that point we've got a handle on this thing."
As of now, the State Fair is still scheduled for August 27 to September 7.
