Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. has announced the cancellation of Bronx Week 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns.

Diaz released the following statement:

"We are disappointed to share that we have made the difficult decision to cancel Bronx Week 2020 to help protect our borough from the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

"Clearly this pandemic continues to be both unpredictable and unlike anything most of us have ever seen. While it certainly remains our sincere hope that we are all past the peak of this public health crisis by Bronx Week’s projected dates in mid-May, the severity of these circumstances, including the anticipated everyday challenges for our recovery, demands that we must take this step to prioritize the health, safety, and well-being of all Bronxites.

"Like so many other organizations impacted by this unprecedented situation, we are now working to recalibrate our plans for the future. Thank you to everyone for your continued patience, support and understanding."
