Grand Haven Main Street is sad to announce the postponement this year’s Wine About Winter event, originally scheduled to take place on Friday, January 14th, 2022.
This decision was not made lightly, and certainly comes at a time of turmoil for community health. Numerous venues have express concern with holding indoor events as the pandemic’s transmission rates and hospitalization rates continue rise in Ottawa County. Wine About Winter is a highly attended indoor event and it is in the best interest of the organization, our valuable businesses, and our community health to delay the event and reschedule it to a future date.
Grand Haven Main Street understands the current issue of community health at stake, and could not in good conscience move forward with an event that could put the very community that supports our businesses and our vibrant Main Street businesses at risk, or in a position they feel unsafe or uncomfortable. We look to a future date where we can all gather safely indoors and hold an amazing and fun event.
“This is why decisions like these are so difficult” said Jeremy Swiftney, Executive Director Grand Haven Main Street. “All of our businesses need your support for their continued success and community impact to continue. While we would absolutely love to have this event, enjoy some amazing food, live music – and of course amazing wine – we also want to remain a community partner that operates safely and responsibly for all to enjoy. Our whole organization made a very difficult decision, and one that certainly stings. But we will continue to move forward. And we will continue to look forward to holding this event when we can safely gather up, and enjoy events like these.”
Grand Haven Main Street is working on a rescheduled date, but is not being announced at this time. Our hope is to hold this event and in the near future, and invite the continued support of our amazing local small businesses.
