The South Perry Business & Neighborhood Association announced this morning that the 21st Annual South Perry Street Fair scheduled for July 18 in the South Perry District has been canceled.

The South Perry Street Fair is a longstanding, family-friendly community celebration and is the primary fundraiser for the SPBNA, supporting businesses of the South Perry District and vendors from across the Inland Northwest.

Last year, nearly 200 vendors at the fair drew 10,000 attendees.

“After much discussion and with heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel the 2020 South Perry Street Fair,” Emily Wenzel, SPBNA president, said in a news release. “This is not how we wanted our 21st annual event to end.

“Due to COVID-19, we felt that it was the best thing to do to keep our neighbors, vendors and attendees safe. We are looking forward to coming back in 2021.”

The South Perry Street Fair team thanked sponsors Global Credit Union and Colvico Electric, South Perry District businesses, vendors and volunteers in the news release. SPBNA plans to continue to support the South Perry District in other ways throughout the year.

Meanwhile, South Perry Thursday Market opened for the season last week. Details: 924 S. Perry St., 3-7 p.m., through Oct. 31. (509) 720-8449; thursdaymarket.org.
