Event Postponed For 2015 -- Check Back For Information About 2016
PACIFIC RIM STREET FEST 2015 CANCELLED
Press Release, April 14, 2015
The Pacific Rim Street Fest committee has announced that it is cancelling the 2015 event, originally scheduled for May 17, and will instead look ahead toward 2016.
Because the Street Fest is funded chiefly through sponsorships, the fund-raising component is crucial. This year it has not been adequately successful, and the limited funds would not allow the committee to produce an event that meets its standards. Instead, the group will focus on an energized, strengthened, and fully successful event for 2016.
Longtime sponsors continue to support the event, and the committee deeply appreciates their commitment. These major sponsors include The Sacramento Bee, KCRA/KQCA My58, and Wells Fargo, as well as Kaiser, McDonald's, and the City of Sacramento.
"This was a terribly difficult decision," commented Merlayna Yee-Chin, chair of the Pacific Rim Street Fest planning committee, "and certainly a huge disappointment to all the people who enjoy the Street Fest. We look forward to a great event in 2016."
