2020 Summer Event Cancellation Update

2020 Summer Event Cancellations

In the City of Ventura, the health and safety of our community is a priority. Based on current guidance from the State, CDC, and local health officials, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the annual Pushem-Pullem Parade, 4th of July Street Fair, and Music Under the Stars concert series. All three events bring large crowds together which makes it difficult to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to celebrating with you in the future.
