Missouri Day postponed

Unfortunately, based on recent Amendments to the Colorado Safer at Home Executive Order, the direction of the Otero County Health Department, as well as the recommendation of the Town of Fowler and legal counsel, we are forced to POSTPONE Missouri Day. THIS IS NOT A CANCELLATION. We hope that regulations allow us to have Missouri Day on Aug. 15, 2020. Please know that this decision was not made lightly, however, it is necessary and right. It is important to understand that in addition to the liability of the organizers, our municipality and our vendors, social distancing guidelines and crowd size limitations simply do not allow for our event to comply with the current mandates and as such, we are unable to obtain event insurance. We intend to revisit the issue in early July to determine if conditions will feasibly allow for us to comply with local and state regulations. Thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to do everything in our power to make this event happen!
