    City of Monticello Cancels Many Summer Events
    Monticello, MN – Every summer the City of Monticello is proud to offer a variety of outdoor
    events bringing people together in our parks and community spaces. We know city residents and
    visitors have come to love these events as much as we do and look forward to them every year.
    However, the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the city to revise our plans
    for summer events.
    For the health and safety of the public, the City of Monticello will cancel many of our annual
    favorites, including: Walk & Roll, Music on the Mississippi, the annual fireworks display, and
    Movie in the Park.
    We understand that this will come as a disappointment to many people, but we are committed to
    following the guidance of health experts and limiting large gatherings of people until we can do
    so safely.
    City staff and our partners are working to find alternate ways to celebrate the summer with you,
    including a modified Farmers Market, a bike challenge at MontiView Park, and a variety of
    programming through the MontiArts Initiative. We will continue to announce new ideas and
    activities as they are finalized. You can find details about these different activities at:
    • www.monticellocommunitycenter.com/farmers-market
    • www.ci.monticello.mn.us/parks
    Until then, we’re optimistically looking forward to bringing back our annual favorites for all of
    you in the summer of 2021.
