Events across the state have been canceled this year because of concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19 during mass gatherings, such as the crowd pictured at the 2018 Chippewa Valley Air Show in Eau Claire. The 2020 edition of the air show, which had been scheduled June 13-14 and was to feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, has been canceled.

One after another, announcements of major event cancellations have rocked Wisconsin’s tourism industry and local economies over the past two months.

From the EAA AirVenture Convention in Oshkosh and Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield to the Tommy Bartlett Show in Wisconsin Dells and Rodeo Parade in Spooner, the hits from the COVID-19 pandemic just keep coming.
