Genesee Country Village & Museum to Cancel All Maple Events

Written by on March 21, 2020

Press Release:

Genesee Country Village & Museum is cancelling both weekends of our Maple Sugar Festival and Pancake Breakfast (March 21-22 and March 28-29) and the Maple Soiree (April 4) in response to the ever-changing impact of COVID-19.

The Museum is continuing to closely monitor evolving guidance and conditions. Other programs beyond these two have not been cancelled at this time, although we continue to assess that daily since the safety of our visitors, staff, and vendors is paramount.

For those who have purchased tickets for the Festival, Breakfast, or Soiree, you have three options for the amount that you paid:

• Receive a credit that can be used towards any 2020 Museum program, general admission, or membership
• Make a tax-deductible donation to the Museum
• Receive a refund

While we understand that some may want a refund for their tickets, we hope that you will consider one of the first two options. GCV&M is a non-profit organization and issuing extensive refunds will increase the extraordinary financial pressure that we are under and impact our ability to support our staff and future programs. Please contact the Program Registrar at ProgramRegistrar@gcv.org or 585-294-8218 for more information.

We have collaborated with colleagues at other Rochester-area cultural institutions and are all taking similar measures to support our members, volunteers, staff, visitors, and greater community.

GCV&M is not open to the public on a daily basis in March or April and updates regarding any other Museum events and programs will be posted to a dedicated web page: https://www.gcv.org/visit/covid-19-information/

Thank you for your continued support of GCV&M. Should you have any questions or comments, please contact us at ProgramRegistrar@gcv.org or 585-294-8218. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Becky Wehle
President & CEO
