Town’s largest event for business and community postponed to ensure public health and safety

CLEMMONS — The Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce announced Monday that the 11th Annual Clemmons Community Day has been postponed until 2021.

The event, held in May each year, provides a venue for local businesses to feature their products and services, while also observing the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day.

Free to the public, attendees are encouraged to bring canned food donations for the Clemmons Food Pantry. Bounce houses, slides, train rides, and food trucks are always on-site for the community to enjoy.

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, the event was delayed until September with a slimmed-down program. The retooled event included a fireworks show, scavenger hunt, swag bags, exclusive event T-shirts, and livestreamed country music entertainment by CMA emerging artist Justin Fabus.

“We worked diligently to reimagine and create an event to support our businesses and bring the community together,” stated Ditra Miller, CEO and executive director of the chamber. “Due to the further extension of Phase 2 and additional factors that could cause difficulty with social distancing, the board had to make a tough, but necessary decision to postpone the event.”

The chamber continues to support area businesses with programs including PPE kit distribution through a partnership with Forsyth County government, Greater Winston-Salem, Inc, and the Kernersville Chamber, and their Small Business Mentoring Program.
