Events that can be held in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions are being planned for the region after Hilltops Council decided not to proceed with the Cherry Blossom Long Lazy Lunch, Boorowa Irish Woolfest, Harden Kite Festival and Young National Cherry Festival.

The events were cancelled in their traditional format due to health and safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Hilltops Council General Manager Anthony O’Reilly says, “The current COVID-19 situation has resulted in the re-evaluation of events for NSW and across Australia. Recent months have seen the cancellation of many events due to their inability to be executed in a COVID-19 safe way under current Public Health Orders. Hilltops Council will continue to encourage visitation and tourism over the coming months, especially during the spring and summer seasonal peaks which feature canola and wheat paddocks, cherry blossoms and the cherry harvest. Our goal remains the same, to increase economic activity for the Hilltops region.”

“The committees of these events have consulted with local businesses and the community to come up with alternative virtual and COVID-19 safe programs. Committees are planning virtual markets, virtual tours, and workshops. There will also be activities that visitors to our region can participate in such as ‘pick your own’ cherries and self-drive canola trails,” he concluded.
