GOLD RUSH DAYS 2021 HAS BEEN CANCELLED
As many of you may have heard, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of our 73rd Annual Gold Rush Days. We want to do our part in helping slow the already-increasing spread of COVID-19 in Wickenburg, and for this reason, the Chamber Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel Gold Rush Days this year.
With the anticipation of a large influx of people from all over the state, especially given the cancellation of other events within Arizona, we run the risk of holding a super-spreader event. We see that it is better to prevent a local shutdown because of increased illnesses. Maintaining a steady drip of income will ensure that our local economy will continue moving forward.
We have not taken this decision lightly, but we feel that is in the best interest of the health and safety of our community, volunteers, attendees, and exhibitors.
We hope that you understand this decision and continue to support our local businesses alongside us.
