Off Sunset Festival Postponement
For Immediate release March 10,2020
RE: Off Sunset Festival 2020 Postponed
Friends – you will not be surprised to learn that the Off Sunset Festival team has been closely monitoring public health officials’ guidance regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
We know that, like us, you treasure the annual Off Sunset Festival as a celebration of our diverse and vibrant community. It’s been an opportunity to party alongside our friends and neighbors since 2013.
Because we’re so passionate about this event, and in full consideration of the risks that the spread of COVID-19 poses, we’ve made the very difficult decision to postpone The Off Sunset Festival this year.
We understand that this will come as a great disappointment to many in our community – we’re really sad about it too, trust us. But, we believe that this is the best way to keep everyone in our community safe and ensure our ability to continue to deliver a great event year after year.
Off Sunset Association is a group of individuals who live, work and play in the Silverlake area. It is with great affection for this diverse community that we launched the Off Sunset Festival in 2013. We own businesses here. We frequent the local restaurants and bars. We spend time in this incredible section of Los Angeles and we want to give back. It is our goal to support beautification, art and youth programs with an emphasis on the LGBT community. Not only is this street fair an exciting day of music, culture, art, food and fun, but it also brings a way for us to offer our support for the place and people we love.
