For Immediate Release
The Appomattox Community & Disaster Relief Organization regrets to inform you that the Appomattox Outdoor Expo, scheduled for Saturday, August 26th and Sunday, August 27th has been canceled and will be rescheduled for 2024.
A lack of interest of behalf of the public was not a factor in this decision at all, rather the anticipated vendors who wanted to attend, either could not muster the manpower needed to run their booths or they were already committed to other events. This left us with some great quality vendors, but sadly not sufficient enough to give attendees the type of event with a bigger variety of vendors that they deserve.
We thank the vendors who did commit to the event from the bottom of our hearts, and we hope they will return for next year’s event, to which will provide them a discount for their troubles. They will also be reimbursed this year for their vendor fees, as will sponsors.
We still believe that an Outdoor Expo is a much-needed event for this area and that it will be well attended, we just need vendors to plan accordingly so they can attend as well. We will be contacting vendors soon with a 2024 date which will be posted on our website, AppomattoxEvents.com, and our Facebook page, Appomattox Outdoor Expo.
