Falmouth Cancels All Summer Events

Board of Selectmen Cancels Town ’Special Events’ Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic – April 28, 2020

The Board of Selectmen has canceled Special Event permits that were issued for events taking place from May through August 31 of 2020 due to concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus. In their discussion, Board members acknowledged the difficulty of the decision given the importance of these events to the community and local businesses but determined that protecting public health must be the top priority. The Board vote does allow for event sponsors to re-apply if they are able to develop a plan that maintains social distance and complies with applicable state and local orders.

Coronavirus Information

Town officials continue to monitor the spread of the novel coronavirus and coordinate regionally to make the best decisions for the safety of all our residents. We understand some of these actions may require some sacrifice on the part of Falmouth residents and visitors. Please know that we do not make these decisions lightly. Taking action now is doing our part to slow the spread of the virus, reduce the number of people infected, and to avoid overwhelming our health care system. Delaying action, or failing to act, could increase the number of Falmouth residents and visitors facing life-threatening illness.
