Large summer events through the end of July canceled/rescheduled

Based on the uncertainty of COVID-19, the City of Maplewood is canceling several larger summer events, including the 4th of July Celebration. This was not an easy decision as these are major gatherings for our city that attract thousands of community members from all backgrounds. We tried to delay this decision as long as possible in hopes the circumstances of the virus would change. However, based on state and federal health officials’ projections of the virus spreading due to large social gatherings and with the financial implications of waiting to cancel events, the City of Maplewood felt it was best to cancel now.

We want to thank the community for its understanding and patience in these difficult times. 

Here is a list of Maplewood events that have been canceled or rescheduled:

  • June Celebrate Summer,  June 10 – Maplewood Summer Challenge, Afton Park
  • June Movie Night at the Farm, June 16 – Bruentrup Family Farm – Rescheduled to September, TBD
  • Light it up 4th of July Celebration, Hazelwood Park
  • Touch a Truck, July 22 – MCC/YMCA

Other Parks and Recreation and Nature Center Programs will continue on a case-by-case basis.
