MCGREGOR, Iowa — Organizers have canceled an upcoming event in McGregor and Marquette because of recently enacted COVID-19 mitigation measures.

The Arts and Crafts Festival originally scheduled for Nov. 27 to 29 at Backwoods in McGregor and Marquette Community Center has been canceled, according to McGregor-Marquette Chamber of Commerce.


The announcement states that the decision was made because of the restriction on indoor events included in the latest state health proclamation by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.
