The annual Taste of Vienna has been canceled to curb the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
In past years, the festival has brought community members together to try bites of food from various local restaurants, chains and food trucks. The event helps raise money for the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department, which hosts the event.
Taste of Vienna announced the cancellation on Facebook on Monday (March 23).
“Our top priority is the safety of all of our participants and attendees, so based on the recommendations of health authorities, it is with a heavy heart that the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department has canceled the Taste of Vienna,” the Facebook post said.
Depending on how long the coronavirus pandemic lasts, the festival might get rescheduled to the fall, the Facebook post added.
Now, the Facebook page is showcasing every day different vendors who had signed up for the festival.
