TABOR — The Tabor Czech Days Chairmen have suspended plans for the upcoming 2020 Tabor Czech Days due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The five-member board deemed suspending the celebration appropriate action due to the current state and federal safety guidelines along with recommendations made by the Tabor Town Board.

The event was to be the 72nd Tabor Czech Days. That distinction will now be held by the 2021 Czech Days, which is still slated to be held June 17, 18 and 19 of 2021, the Tabor Area Chamber of Commerce said in a press release.

The 2020 event had been scheduled for June 19 and 20 in Tabor.

Committee members said the safety of visitors and community members is of the utmost importance, and the Czech Days chairmen and committee members care deeply about the celebration and are looking forward to a great year in 2021, the release continued.


Any craft fair vendor that had already submitted their form and payment will receive a full refund of their payment in the upcoming days.

With the suspension of Tabor Czech Days, the Countdown to Czech Days Calendar drawings will continue up until its conclusion on June 20 of this year. For information on purchasing a Countdown to Czech Days Calendar, email .
