DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - The 2020 Decatur Craft Beer Festival has been cancelled.

The Decatur Area Arts Council announced the decision Tuesday afternoon.

The festival was supposed to be held Aug. 28 and 29.

Officials said, "Necessary COVID-19 health guidelines do not allow us to present this event in the expected 'craft beer festival' style."

The arts council hopes that those who would have attended the festival will support local breweries who have been struggling during this time. 

Next year the festival is expected to be held on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Officials say the event is one of their largest fundraisers and they hope people will still donate to the arts in Decatur.
