(AS OF FRIDAY, MAY 12, 2PM)
The Town of Middleburg regrets to inform the public that we have CANCELED Art in the Burg 2023, scheduled for Saturday, May 13th. The weather forecast indicates a 90% chance of rain for a significant portion of the day, to include up to a 50% chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
While we normally hold this event rain or shine, the likelihood of constant rain throughout the day has caused us to make this decision. We respect the need of artists to protect their artwork and crafts without risk of damage. Further, the weather outlook impacts attendance at outdoor events.
This year, the Town was not able to identify a rain date due to other events around the same weekend. In future years we will try to identify rain dates to accommodate these kinds of situations.
We encourage you to make plans for Oktoberfest 2023, which will include Artists’ Alley with many artists who had planned to exhibit at Art in the Burg.
If you have questions or concerns, you can contact the Town Office during business hours at 540-687-5152.
