Riverside County Health Officials announced Thursday the cancelation of the 2021 Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival.
The 35th annual event was scheduled for May 21-23 at the Lake Skinner Recreation Center in Winchester.
“This Order recognizes that the Festival is a gathering of an international scope, attracting tens of thousands of attendees from many countries, including several disproportionately afflicted by the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic,” reads part of the order.
The event typically features some 200 vendors, while the Food Court delivers Fair foods, a Kids Faire, balloon lift off or rides, live music and wine and beer tastings.
Organizers have not commented.
