In July 2019, the Lake County Chamber brought a new event to our communities ‘Rhythm and Brews’ held in Library Park. The event featured two bands, food and craft vendors, a VIP Dunk Tank and a VIP Tasting Garden of microbrews and grilled cheese appetizers. We have worked this year to plan and produce our 2nd Annual Rhythm and Brews; our vendor applications went out prior to the SIP order and we signed up two bands for this year.
Having said all this we were extremely excited to bring the event again to Library Park in July which was approved by the City of Lakeport. We made the decision to postpone the event to October 17th however, with the continuing challenges of the COVID pandemic we have now determined that we must cancel Rhythm and Brews for 2020. This was not an easy decision however we will return on July 17, 2021 with Rhythm and Brews, feature many local restaurants, great family owned breweries.
Another event produced by the Lake County Chamber is the Annual Seaplane Splash In, 2020 was to be the 41st Annual! We had applied to the City of Lakeport for the permit and provided our COVID compliance program to the City and Dr. Pace. With the latest developments announced by Governor Newsom yesterday and all the continuing concerns about ‘large’ gatherings we are also cancelling the Splash In for 2020. The tentative date for 2021 is September 18th.
A reminder to all event organizers in Lake County, please set your dates for 2021 and submit them to our Lake County Chamber calendar as soon as possible (www.lakecochamber.com). This is a free service of the Chamber and by submitting them now, we are sending a message to our residents and potential visitors in 2021 that Lake County is planning ahead and there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel! Stay well and stay safe!
