Williamsburg’s Kiwanis Shrimp Feast Cancelled Due To Pandemic

WILLIAMSBURG-The Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg has cancelled its popular Shrimp Feast for 2021 in light of the growing number of covid-19 cases.

The annual fundraising event for Kiwanis was scheduled for September 11 outside at Jamestown Settlement.  The event will be rescheduled for September 2022.

Canceling this year’s Shrimp Feast “was a thoughtful and reasoned decision based on the rapidly growing number of covid-19 cases in our community,” said Tucker Edmonds, club president, in a statement. “The health and well-being of the members of our community, and especially the volunteers who make this event so successful and enjoyable is paramount.”

Kiwanis isn’t the first organization to cancel upcoming large events due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic. Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center also recently announced it will postpone its “A Night On The Olde Towne” benefit gala, which was planned for September 17.
