JAMESTOWN – Hope for a scaled down version of this year’s Labor Day Festival in Jamestown was squashed Wednesday morning after city leaders announced the festival will not take place in any capacity.

In a news bulletin to local media, Jamestown Parks, Recreation and Conservation Coordinator Julia Ciesla-Hanley announced this year’s celebration has been canceled.





Previously, city leaders were hopeful the Labor Day Committee could host a “scaled down” gathering.

However, Ciesla-Hanley says the event does not meet New York State’s guidelines on large group gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We encourage everyone to take a moment to thank workers who have made this holiday possible and to thank those who have kept us safe and healthy during these times,” said Ciesla-Hanley in a statement.





















The festival would have taken place Sunday, September 6 in Bergman Park.

The city does have plans to honor the workforce in the local community this week.
