DSDC officials made the announcement on Facebook:
“In the interest of Public health and safety, we are not going to be able to move forward with hosting the 2020 Pumpkin Fest on November 7, 2020. While the teams at Downtown Statesville Development Corp., the Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce and the Pumpkin Fest Planning Committee were eagerly planning to see you for some fun in November, we cannot move forward in good conscience. The well-being of our vendors, volunteers, sponsors and Community is of the utmost importance to us.
