Vendor Refund 2020

We, the Berne Chamber of Commerce board of directors – in discussion with the Adams County Health Department, regarding CDC guidelines – have made the difficult decision to cancel our Swiss Days 2020 Festival scheduled for July 23, 24, and 25.

The decision was not made lightly, but out of an abundance of caution and concern for our community, vendors, entertainers, volunteers, and attendees. With the amount of preparation and moving parts that our festival entails, it would be nearly impossible to ensure that it would be safe to celebrate together July 23rd-25th. We have been monitoring the situation over the past several weeks, and we believe that this cancellation is the right decision to do our part in flattening the curve and to keep our community safe.

While we are disappointed that we will not be able to hold our annual festival, we hope to find alternatives to celebrate our city, community, and Swiss heritage when it is safe to do so.

Our website will be updated accordingly in the coming weeks:

Our team will be contacting each vendor, entertainer, sponsor, and organizer to provide information regarding refunds.

Vendors, please fill out this form to let us know your preference on how you will be refunded.
