Mount Vernon’s 4th of July Antique festival cancelled

MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG), a Main Street Iowa organization, today announced that its annual 4th of July Nitty Gritty Antiques Festival has been cancelled.

“This has been a very difficult decision for us,” said event organizer Karrie Clark. “This event has been the highlight of so many of our summers, but we just didn’t think we could pull it off safely this year. We hope that everyone will understand and return in 2021 for what will surely be our biggest festival yet.”

All vendor booth fees will be returned via mail within the next week.
