For Immediate Release: September 27, 2010
The Town of Sudbury will no longer host Sudbury Day, the annual day-long event that celebrated the town’s diverse residents, businesses, and organizations and featured performances, children’s activities, booths, and food from local restaurants and cafes. During its seven year run, Sudbury Day experienced tremendous growth and interest from members of the community: the last Sudbury Day in 2009, held for the first time at Lincoln-Sudbury High School at a new time of year, drew several thousand people and over 100 exhibitors.
“The nine committee members, many of whom have been with the event since the beginning, felt that the last Sudbury Day was the best ever, but also something that would be difficult to replicate, given the committee’s time constraints,” said Lisa Barth, Sudbury Day’s co-chair. "Perhaps a private group or promoter would be interested in taking over the event," added co-chair Abby Ward. “The transition would be fairly easy, as many of the materials are still available and the elements of the event are well-documented.”
The Sudbury Day Committee is grateful to all the businesses, organizations, and volunteers who have supported the event throughout the years. All previous and prospective exhibitors will receive letters explaining the event’s closing.
