Saturday Evening Rochesterfest Events Canceled
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The 2021 Rochesterfest has come to an early end.
Rochesterfest Executive Director Brandon Helgeson announced late Saturday afternoon that the remainder of the activities that had been planned at Soldiers Field Park have been canceled. That includes the concerts, which are currently not being rescheduled.
Helgeson says the decision was made after further consultation with the National Weather Service and Rochester Police Department. It was earlier announced that the popular Rochesterfest Grand Parade had been canceled because of the threat of inclement weather.
The decision to wrap up Rochesterfest activities at Soldiers Field Park does not impact an event scheduled to take place tomorrow. The annual 1860s Baseball event at the History Center of Olmsted County featuring the Rochester Roosters will take place as scheduled Sunday beginning with an exhibition game between the Hens and the Chicks at 4:30 p.m. followed by a game between the Roosters and Rochester Roadrunners at 6 PM.
