Grotonfest Postponed A Second Time, to Sunday Oct. 9

For the third time in three weeks, Grotonfest is dodging rain drops. The town’s premier fall festival is now scheduled for Sunday, October 9.
Originally scheduled for September 24, the event was first pushed back a week, and organizers have now had to moved it again, from the first weekend in October to Columbus Day weekend. The target day is Sunday, October 9, to avoid a conflict with Yom Kippur, an important Jewish holiday that falls on Friday and Saturday. Columbus Day, Monday Oct. 10, is the backup rain date.

Jane Bouvier, Groton Board of Trade Vice-president and Grotonfest organizer, before announcing the second big slip, said that she was tearing her hair out in frustration at the fickle New England weather.

Grotonfest Rained Out -- Pushed to Oct. 1

Sheets of rain were pelting down Thursday evening when Grotonfest’s Groton Board of Trade organizers made the call to push the annual festival back a week, to Saturday October 1, because of rain. The festival was to be held this Saturday or Sunday, the rain date, but Groton is included in a flood watch area through Saturday evening and is forecast to receive more than an inch of rain through Saturday. Although the weather may clear on Sunday, Legion Common is a dish-shaped area and would hold water or be too muddy for the 4-5000 person event, organizers said.

After consulting with Groton Police Chief Donald Palma, Event Organizer Jane Bouvier made the decision to postpone the event.
