The Niagara Reporter is sad to report that the 2020 Niagara County Peach Festival has been cancelled. The Kiwanis Club of Lewiston, who has organized the event each year since 1958, says it cancelled the festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Kiwanis Club of Lewiston is saddened to announce we will not be able to hold the Peach Festival this year,” said Peach Festival Chairman Dean Beltrano in a press release. “After discussions with our vendors, the cancellation by our ride vendor, Amusement Rides of America and for the safety of our members, volunteers and the community at large, the Board of Directors decided it would be in the best interest to cancel the Festival this year and come back stronger in 2021. We thank the community for their continued support and look forward to seeing you all at Lewiston’s Academy Park in 2021.”

The festival was set to take place between September 10th and 13th this year at Academy Park in Lewiston and annually draws more than 30,000 people to Lewiston over the four day period.

With no concerts at Artpark, no Peach Festival, and other cancellations, Lewiston will not be the center for outdoor events in Niagara County as it has been in years past.
