To all of our friends, fans and businesses of the Lathrop area,

It is with tremendous sadness that the Friendship Festival Committee announce that the 2020 Lathrop Friendship Festival has been canceled this year.

Given the rapidly changing landscape regarding the Coronavirus, COVID-19, and the economic stress and uncertainties our community is facing led our committee to this decision. Since the Lathrop Friendship Festival is funded by the sponsorships from our local and loyal businesses and citizens we have decided to cancel the festival this year.

By canceling the event at this date, we ensure that any contracted funds are not forfeited. Our hope is to allow our community and businesses to save expenses during this time of uncertainty.

Our hope is to plan an event in the Fall for the community so please follow us to be sure to stay informed.

We deeply apologize to all of the friends and supporters of the Lathrop Friendship Festival. We hope to see you in the Fall!
