Bethel SummerFest Rescheduled Due To Heat Advisory

Bethel SummerFest 2019 Is Being Rescheduled

After months of planning, we are reluctantly forced to reschedule this year's SummerFest due to the unsafe heat advisory that has been issued for Saturday, with heat and high humidity creating unsafe conditions for outdoor activities.

We will release the revised date and times soon, so please keep a look out for that announcement.

Several downtown businesses will still be having special indoor events this Saturday.

PhotoWorks, who turned 10 this year, will be hosting an artist reception on Saturday from 2 to 5 pm at 226 Greenwood Avenue.

Byrds Books will be having a special indoor summer sidewalk sale and visits by several authors throughout the day on Saturday. They are located at 178 Greenwood Avenue.

The scheduled authors include:

1:00am: Lauren Baratz-Logsted will sign "I Love You Michael Collins"

12:00pm: Donna Marie Merritt will sign her poetry and children's books, including: "Her House and Other Poems" and Teensy Meensy Mice"

1:00pm: National Book Award nominee Vesper Stamper will sign "What the Night Sings"

1:00pm: Jack Sheedy will sign "Gandy Dancing"

2:00pm: Bethel's Poet Laureate Cortney Davis will sign her poetry and "Learning to Heal"

2:00pm: Rob McWilliams will sign "The Kiss of Sweet Scottish Rain"

The Toy Room will be having an indoor sidewalk sale on Saturday with HUGE savings up to 75% off, as well as a visit from 11 to 2 by the Sandcastle Guy from Create a Castle. They are located at 180 Greenwood Avenue.

We will update this list as we get more details about other ongoing (and indoor) events that day.

We will also be coordinating a number of evening shopping events throughout town in August and September. Please keep an eye out for that, too.

BeerFest is still on for Friday, July 26th from 6 to 9 pm with Unlimited beer tastings and food samples from local restaurants, plus live music and games. Early forecasts call for a much cooler, dryer day. Discounted tickets are available online at bethelbeerfest.com.
