From the announcement on the TempleFest site:
“When we announced that TempleFest would be held this year as planned, we had the highest hopes that the pandemic would be better controlled and our community would be able to come together safely to celebrate and reconnect. Unfortunately this is not the case. There is no way that we can ensure that everyone coming to TempleFest is 100% Covid-19 free. Even one person in the close quarters that we share in workshops, dorms and cafeteria could infect the majority of our community over the four days. This is not an acceptable risk to us. The health of every member of our community is too important to us for us to take the chance of someone contracting Covid-19.
TempleFest online will be held on August 22nd and 23rd. Over the two days, we’ll have a marketplace that will showcase our vendors, (because what’s TempleFest without something special from the crafts-people that you love), ten workshops, a ritual and a keynote address.”
