BOURBONNAIS – The Bourbonnais Grove Historical Society has canceled the Les Artisans Arts & Crafts Fair for the second time in 2020 due to COVID-19.

“This was a difficult decision. We have no way of knowing what the covid numbers will be in our region at that time, and to wait until some of our vendors have invested time and money in Christmas inventory places additional strains on them.” Coordinator Ellen Stringer said in an announcement on social media Saturday. “I appreciate everyone’s support during this strange year. If you’d like to help BGHS, please consider a donation to the Log Cabin Restoration Project, become a member, and/or volunteer.”

The semi-annual craft show is held annually in July and December each year.  July’s show was canceled in early June. 

December’s show had been scheduled for Saturday, December 5th.
