2020 Autumn Festival Brochure & Application

Update as of 7/2/20 - We are in a holding pattern at this time with regard to sending our application out as we still don’t have clear cut answers.  We continue to remain in regular contact with all of the facilities we utilize as they learn more and navigate their state’s recommendations and reopening plans.  As of today, this is the most recent information we have from each facility and state.  

 

Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL – October 22, 23, 24, 25, 2020

Illinois is currently in Phase 4 of their 5 Phase ‘Restore Illinois’ plan.  In Phase 4 gatherings are limited to 50 people or fewer.  That being said, if our show occurred today, we would be allowed to have a maximum of 150 people in the building (50 people per section of the 3 areas of the building we utilize.)  Conventions, festivals and large events with no attendance restrictions could occur in Phase 5.  Phase 5 currently requires a vaccine, effective and widely available treatment or the elimination of new cases over a sustained period of time through herd immunity.       

 

Ralston Arena in Ralston (Omaha), NE – November 5, 6, 7, 8, 2020

The majority of the Ralston Arena staff is still on furlough as of right now.  They have asked us to give them until the end of July as the building works through possible reopening plans with their primary tenant (USHL Omaha Lancers Hockey team) and the City of Ralston.    

 

Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN - November 12, 13, 14, 15, 2020

Minnesota is currently in Phase 3 of their ‘Stay Safe’ plan.  In Phase 3 indoor events must maintain 6’ of social distance and a maximum of 250 people are allowed per area of the building.  Canterbury Park staff is just starting to return from furlough status.  Live racing, simulcasting and the Card Casino reopened in June and are adhering to the Phase 3 guidelines.   

 

Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, SD – November 20, 21, 22, 2020

Denny Sanford Premier Center staff is starting to return to work and is navigating how to welcome events back while implementing CDC recommendations and social distancing protocols. 

 

We will continue to remain in regular contact with each facility and provide updates as we learn more in the coming weeks.  Please note that a decision regarding our 2020 Autumn Festivals has not been made either way.  

 

We love what we do, we appreciate our exhibitors and customers, and want to return to doing shows when we know it is safe and we are able to do so.
