After careful consideration and discussion with event partners, it has been decided to postpone Charlie Adams Day until 2021.

“While we are as dedicated as ever to supporting Newkirk and its historic downtown district, the health and well-being of our volunteers and attendees come first. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause. Newkirk Main Street looks forward to continuing our mission and we hope to partner with you in the future. In the meantime please stay safe and healthy,” said Alyssa Winner McCleery of Newkirk Main Street.

“Many people from our volunteer pool are in the high risk category being as they are 55 and older. It is our obligation to them to keep them healthy.”

Charlie Adams Day was an annual event in Newkirk that featured barbecue teams, arts and craft booths, games and activities and more. It had been scheduled for Sept. 12.
