KENOVA, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — Another popular festival in the region has canceled most of its events for 2020.

The C-K AutumnFest Board of Directors announced the decision to cancel festivities in a social media post Wednesday. The cancellation also includes the Pumpkin House, which draws thousands each fall.

“The Board has been monitoring the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines and we feel it is in the best interest and safety of our visitors, vendors and community to make this decision,” organizers said in a statement.

Also included in the cancellation are the AutumnFest pageant, parade, cruise-in, tractor show, arts & craft fair, canning competition, bake-off, concert series and kids activities, according to the post.

The Ceredo Farmers Market is scheduled to open for the season on Friday, June 26. The market will maintain hours of 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. every Friday and Saturday at the Town Shelter located on the parking lot of Mitch Stadium.

Anchor farms will again be the Greenbrier Farm of Fort Gay, operated by Bill and Dorothy Stewart, and Rocky Knob Farm of Pritchard, operated by Jason and Tab Ekers. In addition to the anchor farms, smaller specialty growers will provide “in season” specialty items and baked goods.

COVID-19 precautionary measures will be in effect, including the use of a curbside drive-thru lane where shoppers can order vegetables from the car. Shoppers beneath the shelter will be limited to six persons at a time for social distancing reasons, and gloves will be required for those persons that desire to feel the produce. Gloves and sanitizer will be provided by the Town at no cost.
