TUCKER, Ga. (March 27. 2020) – The popular Tucker Day festival, a tradition in the City for more than 60 years, will be postponed this year due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Organizers say the event, originally scheduled for May 9, will now take place on September 26.
“I want to compliment the volunteers who put on Tucker Day each year for their willingness to make this difficult decision,” said Tucker Mayor Frank Auman. “The countless hours of work they put into each of these great events is appreciated and we know thousands of revelers will appreciate it when they come to Main Street for the rescheduled event.”
This year’s festival, which has the theme “The Roaring 20’s”, will feature dozens of booths and vendors, and dozens more restaurants and food options. It also will have a full slate of live music.
“We’re disappointed to have to move this great event, but we look forward to bringing The Roaring 20’s to life on September 26,” said organizer Honey Van De Kreke.
Van De Kreke promised that holding Tucker Day in the fall would be a one-year change. In 2021, she plans to move the event to its traditional second Saturday in May, meaning Tucker Day would happen on May
