FORSYTH, Ga. — Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Forsythia Festival has been suspended until further notice.
According to a news release from the Forsyth-Monroe County Chamber of Commerce, the decision came after Forsyth Mayor Eric Wilson formally recommended the cancellation of the festival Thursday. Wilson said he consulted with local leaders and health officials and came to the conclusion that it was in the community's best interest to postpone the festival.
The release says the city will continue to monitor the situation and make a decision about whether or not to hold the festival later in the year.
