GREEN RIVER — The Flaming Gorge Days Committee has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone Flaming Gorge Days 2021 until 2022 due to the on-going nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“This is a decision that we have not taken lightly, and we have done so with the highest regard for public health and the well-being of all sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and visitors who come together to make this iconic event happen.
“We have been carefully monitoring updates from the CDC and the State of Wyoming, as well as those from our local officials. While there has been some easing of health orders, Sweetwater County remains in the “red zone” for rates of transmission and positive cases,” the release said.
The decision to postpone the festival is based on a desire to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep all participants safe.
“As a result, it would be irresponsible to hold an event where all appropriate safety measures could not be implemented, and would be incompatible with the state health orders and the CDC guidance regarding gatherings,” the release said.
The rescheduled date for Flaming Gorge Days is June 23-25, 2022.
