The Lockport Chamber of Commerce board of directors has canceled Old Canal Days.

The event was scheduled for June 18 to 21. The first Old Canal Days was in 1973.

A news release from the Chamber said that the decision was made in the interest of public health in an effort to continue to minimize the impact of COVID-19, in accordance with Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive orders and current recommended guidelines established by the Illinois Department of Public Health.  

Every year, Old Canal Days attracts thousands of residents and visitors to Lockport in celebration of the City of Historic Pride and the Illinois & Michigan Canal’s contributions to the region.

This family-friendly summer festival features the annual Lockport parade, live music, craft show, family-friendly activities, carnival, food trucks, beer garden, wine tent and much more.

The next Old Canal Days is scheduled for June 10 to 13, 2021.
