(March 14, 2020) -- The 2020 Blue Ridge Trout & Outdoor Adventures Festival (Trout Fest) believes we share a responsibility to help protect our families and community. Trout Fest and the Back The Brookies Bash is CANCELED. We have taken this precautionary measure to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community. We are encouraging everyone to stay home especially if you have any signs of fever, cough or flu-like symptoms.
Trout Fest made the decision to cancel the 2020 event in adherence to the decision made by the city of Blue Ridge to cancel or postponed all public events until further notice. We will follow the city’s guidelines as these are determined by the city with advice and updates from the Fannin EMA and Department of Public Health.
Our goal now is to continue supporting the vendors and sponsors of Trout Fest 2020 while we move ahead and plan the 2021 Blue Ridge Trout & Outdoor Adventures Festival on April 24, 2021 in downtown city park, Blue Ridge, Georgia. There's much to do (and a lot of time to do it!), while we coordinate refunds of vendor's fees and sponsorship funding, and invite everyone to join us in 2021 to celebrate trout fishing in the Trout Capital of Georgia. If you have not yet been refunded your fees/sponsorships, please contact Trout Fest event coordinator Bob Borgwat -- email: email@example.com or call 706-838-5259.
Thank you for your support. We will be in touch as we know more.
