The current Covid outbreak and associated lockdown of Greater Sydney has forced us to cancel the Rhodo Festival in 2021. This includes the Art Show, the Revue, the Festival Weekend and Parade.

With the lockdown to be extended into September and possibly beyond, restrictions on people movement and gatherings is highly likely to make our festival unviable. Equally importantly, we value your health and safety too much to risk bringing so many people together in our small town with delta variant on the loose and so many of us not yet fully vaccinated. We are really disappointed to have had to make this decision, and look forward to a brighter outlook in 2022.
