Fort Ligonier Days, Inc. Board President Mark Sorice announced the decision on the festival's website and social media Wednesday evening.

"The decision of the Board and contributions by the Committee make this decision a most difficult one. Our community needs Fort Ligonier Days, not only to support local businesses, but to help the good works of many charities that benefit from the money that we raise. We do not approach such a decision lightly and it is with great sadness that we cancel this year’s event, recognizing that the risk of the health of our community overrides any other factor," Sorice said.
