According to WGRZ, The Waldfest committee decided to cancel this year's festival. It was supposed to take place on July 19th at Spring Garden in East Aurora.

Waldfest is a yearly celebration of German-American food, drinks, tradition and heritage.

"Though this year’s decision may seem to bring a pause to that annual contribution, it is truly aligned to the spirit of the festival, which celebrates the deep-rooted values of our community, especially the love and care for family and friends," the committee wrote in an announcement on its website.
