Press Release - May 11, 2020
CITY OF NORTH SALT LAKE, UT – The City Council has announced after careful consideration that the City’s popular Liberty Fest celebration for 2020 has been cancelled. Events originally slated for June 27 through July 3 that traditionally feature a 5K run, Festival of Speed car show and fireworks at Eaglewood Golf Course have been cancelled due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to Mayor Len Arave, “Festivities around the Fourth of July have been an important part of our city for many years. It has unified our city and our families as we have welcomed our citizens and visitors to these events. Our state and county officials have asked us to limit mass gatherings this year in order to contain the spread of COVID-19, and it is with great disappointment that we have decided to cancel Liberty Fest for 2020. We had high hopes we would be able to go forward with the event, but we know that cancelling is in the best interest of all attendees, the City of North Salt Lake, and the State of Utah.”
City officials said that although conditions may change before the scheduled Liberty Fest events, a decision needed to be made due to the planning and preparation that would need to be done between now and then.
This would have been the 23rd annual event.
