FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TUSCALOOSA- In the interest of the safety of its citizens, Mayor Walt Maddox has canceled all city group events through March 31. Following the Mayor’s lead Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports has canceled all of its March sporting events, as well as the Druid City Arts Festival (DCAF) scheduled for April 3 & 4. This is a strategic move executed to get ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports will faithfully follow the City’s directions.
At the end of March, the City will reevaluate for events scheduled in April and beyond. This has been a rapidly evolving situation, and we honor and respect the City’s decision. We are committed to doing our part to help protect our staff, attendees, and fellow Tuscaloosans.
“TTS understands the gravity of the situation for all the artists, musicians, organizations, and businesses involved in creating our incredible product. We are extremely disappointed to cancel an event that thousands have enjoyed the last ten years,” said Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports CEO Don Staley. “But this is merely a temporary setback for our organization. We will work hard to bring unique events to Tuscaloosa, and we will continue to promote and develop local tourism and sporting events to stimulate Tuscaloosa’s economy, and enhance the quality of life for all Tuscaloosans.”
