Organizers on Monday canceled the massive 4/20 festival in Denver’s Civic Center Park due to the new coronavirus outbreak.
Euflora Marketing Director Lindsay Hanna confirmed in an email to Denverite that due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and uncertainty around its spread, the FlyHi 420 Festival in Civic Center Park has been canceled.
“The health and safety of our performers and attendees is the top priority,” Hanna said in an email to Denverite. “FlyHi will follow the City of Denver’s guidelines to reduce unnecessary public interaction.”
Mayor Michael Hancock on Monday said the city was banning gatherings larger than 50 people. Hanna said there weren’t immediate plans to reschedule the event.
