The continued transformation of the Minneapolis summer has continued with news that the Stone Arch Bridge Festival has been postponed.

Having taken place on Father's Day weekend in June for the past 25 years, this year's celebration of local art and music will be pushed back to September due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It will now take place on the weekend of September 26 and 27, organizers announced on Monday.

"This postponement is due to COVID-19 and out of concern for the health and well-being of the artists, attendees and the community," it announced.

It's the latest summer event in the Twin Cities to get either canceled or postponed, with others affected by the ongoing pandemic including Twin Cities Pride, Grand Old Day, Rock the Garden, and the Edina Art Fair.

The Stone Arch Bridge Festival says that when it does go ahead in September, it will offer more than 20 artisanal food stalls, vintage and vinyl market vendors, live music across two stages, beer sampling, and a family activities area.

It's scheduled to kick off at Father Hennepin Park at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25 and conclude at 5 p.m. two days later, with an after hours concert planned for the Saturday.

The event, which was scheduled for May 29 and 30, has been held every year since 2001.
