It is with careful consideration that the Vidalia Onion Festival Committee and the City of Vidalia have decided to cancel the 2020 Vidalia Onion Festival due to the threat of Covid-19. The health and well-being of our citizens and visitors is of the utmost importance to us. We must heed the advice of our national and state elected officials and the CDC to safeguard against the situation as much as possible.
Much thought went into whether we could reschedule, but a multi-event festival like this makes it impossible to find a date that would be feasible for the majority of the events. The Vidalia Onion Festival is scheduled to coincide with the beginning of the harvest; Vidalia Onions have a short season, with supplies usually only lasting thru the end of August.
