The Board of Directors of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce has determined that, in consideration of the recent dramatic spike in cases of Covid-19 in our county, it would be in the best interest of the public to cancel the 2020 Holly Jolly Festival scheduled for Saturday, November 21. This decision was not made lightly, but with deliberation and discussion, and with the advice of Pike County Health Department.
Thank you for your understanding as the Board made this difficult decision in consideration of our fellow residents. Although some events may be canceled, the Chamber is continuing to stay active and involved in our city whenever possible, including ribbon cuttings for the many new business here and our monthly membership meetings. Also, plans are still underway for the annual awards banquet next January.
If you need any further information or have any questions, visit our Facebook page, our website, or contact the Executive Director, Sarrah Gigous, at the Chamber office, 573-324-3733.

After much consideration and discussion, in addition to seeking the advice of Pike County Health Department concerning the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce has determined that it would be in the best interest of the public to postpone the 2020 Heritage Festival.
The Board will continue to monitor the health situation, but is tentatively planning to combine the Heritage Festival with the annual Holly Jolly event. This combined event would possibly be held at the end of November. Vendors and sponsors who have already registered for the Heritage Festival will be allowed to choose whether to transfer their registration to the potential combined event or to receive a refund.
