Organizers for the Longmire Days celebration have decided to cancel their in-person events for this summer and start planning for the 10th anniversary of the event in 2021.
According to a release sent out Monday, the Longmire Foundation has decided to move forward with virtual events, Longmire community watch parties, and other events from August 13th through the 16th later this summer, but the overall celebration will be significantly smaller than in years past.
Organizers held a meeting with city and county officials, local law enforcement, the media, and Public Health officials to discuss the possibilities for the events that are being discussed, and how to stage them with current health guidelines that are fluid and may change between now and August.
Jennifer McCormick, Executive Director of the Longmire Foundation, explained why they felt the need to cancel the majority of this year’s events.
Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Schueler has asked the organizers to send written descriptions of two very small events that are still in the talking/planning stages that he will then forward to State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist for review.
Information on the virtual events, and opportunities to participate in them will be coming soon.
Monitor their website and Facebook page for details as they become available.
