The Madison-Bouckville Promotions board of directors has announced that the August 10-16 event has been canceled. “After discussion with multiple local and state officials it has been determined it would be unsafe to hold an event of this magnitude at this time,” a statement reads. Madison-Bouckville Antique Week comprises 14 independently owned show fields.
“COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on all of our lives in the recent months. With much hope and optimism we have watched the statistics and predictions and at this point feel that proceeding with the show may possibly endanger participants, dealers, and even members of our own community. We apologize for any disappointment or hardship this decision has made for you, and we ask that you put Madison Bouckville Antique Week on your 2021 schedule.” The dates for 2021 are August 16-22.
“The Madison-Bouckville Antique Community and all the members of Madison Bouckville Promotions would like to say ‘Stay Safe,’ and we look forward to welcoming you all back when our ‘normal’ resumes.”
Antiques shops and most businesses in the Madison-Bouckville area are open for business and are following New York state’s reopening guidelines. For more information, check the website (www.madison-bouckville.com).
