St. Stephen Festival cancelled this year

By Scott Bolthouse | The Huron Hub

Published May 8, 2020 

A realization is being felt across the country: spring and summer just aren’t going to be the same this year due to the coronavirus.

Festivals, celebrations, and just about anything involving large groups of people are being cancelled everywhere to slow the spread of the virus.

Every May for decades, the St. Stephen Polish Festival has been a popular spring tradition in New Boston.

Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival, which was scheduled for May 15-17, is cancelled.
