2020 HOUSTON TURKISH FESTIVAL POSTPONED
It is with great regret that, after careful consideration, American Turkish Association decided to postpone the upcoming 27th Houston Turkish Festival, in recognition of the growing health risks posed by the COVID-19 virus.
The Houston Turkish Festival has been bringing together people from all backgrounds for over two decades to celebrate the arts and culture of Turkey. It owes its success to the people who have made this possible over the years. Today, with the health and well being of those people as our top priority, we have made this difficult but necessary decision.
We appreciate the understanding of all our vendors, volunteers, and partners who have already invested so much of their time in the preparations of the festival, and we look forward to continuing to work with them as we redraw our road map. All tickets already purchased will be refunded immediately.
We are on hold, but not off the project. We will keep our engines warm and spend this time reflecting on how we can improve our end product. We are not going to discard all the great and hard work our team has been putting into this project. This will only give us more time to refine what we have and provide an even better product when the time is right. One thing that does not need refining is our team and our community.
Please stay tuned for updates from us.
And above all, please stay safe.
