An outdoor festival in NuLu has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

NuLu Bock Fest was originally scheduled for March 21, then postponed until May 23, but the NuLu Neighborhood Association announced Monday the festival was canceled.

The festival features goat racing along with food and drinks from several breweries and restaurants.

NuLu Business Association president Rick Murphy said, “It’s disappointing to lose out on this opportunity to showcase the best of our neighborhood and businesses this year. But like so many other event organizers who have had to make similar decisions, we feel it is important to keep our community safe at this time. Once we have defeated this virus, we can all come together again for a true celebration.”

The festival is scheduled to take place on March 20, 2021 in the 600 and 700 blocks of East Main Street.
