It is with deep sadness that the South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce must announce the cancellation of the 28th Annual Icebreaker Fest, January 29-31, 2021. We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to local businesses, but to our area non-profit organizations, vendors, and attendees.
Understanding the gravity of this decision meant that we enlisted the expertise of the CDC, Van Buren/Cass County Health Department officials, City of South Haven, and South Haven Area Emergency Services.
Our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel to protect our community, and those who would visit from the region, and neighboring states. We could never have predicted having to make such a decision as this one and we clearly understand this will impact the ability of local businesses to bring in critical revenue during an otherwise challenging month.
We have truly appreciated the generous support and participation we have received from local businesses for this event over the past 27 years, and assure we are strongly committed to carrying on the tradition of this amazing event in the future as the effects of COVID-19 dissipate.
