It’s a Birthday Celebration!
Who knew that celebrating York’s 150th birthday this year would look the way it does? This year has presented new challenges for us as a community and we have risen to meet them straight on. As preparations for our annual community celebration began, COVID was on the forefront of everyone’s mind.
If Yorkfest cannot take place because of safety concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will communicate that decision through local media outlets, social media @yorknechamber and on our website yorkchamber.org. Please check those as we get closer to dates of the events.
Participating businesses and organizations are open and looking forward to celebrating York’s Birthday with you. They will continue to operate within the directed guidelines all while being great hosts to members of the community. Our desire is to safely celebrate our great community using the guidelines that we are provided.

* As of 7.24.2020 Nebraska’s current Directive Health Measures (DHM’s) does not allow for parades. York Chamber is optimistic that will change by Yorkfest. Stay up to date at yorkchamber.org.
