The Pinconning Chamber of Commerce Board has made the difficult decision to forego the CheeseTown Festival and CheeseTown Challenge Races for 2021. With the current projections on COVID vaccination and the dire predictions of the spread of the new variants, we feel that planning a major event for mid-June of this year will be a futile effort. If the situation changes in the next several months to allow large-scale gatherings at that point, we'll put together an event that meets whatever limitations the State has in place at the time.

We've chosen to focus our efforts on 2022, which will be the Pinconning Area's Sesquicentennial (150th anniversary). In 1972, there was a major celebration of the Centennial, and we're researching that event for ideas and information. We plan to make this a truly community-wide celebration with events throughout entire summer of 2022 with the major events centered on the CheeseTown, Father's Day Weekend. We appreciate your support and look forward to hosting you for a series of memorable events starting next year that will keep you coming back through next summer and for years to come.
