RIDGEWAY, VA – Martinsville Speedway announced that Celebration 2020 has officially been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Celebration, a Martinsville tradition for over two decades, is an annual event around Independence Day with the largest fireworks display in the region.
“Given the current situation in our region, it is in the best interest of public safety to cancel this year’s Celebration 2020,” said President Clay Campbell. “Thanks to our loyal partners who help make this event so special for our community and Henry County each year. Together we are committed to bringing back Celebration in 2021.”
The event is scheduled to return around the fourth of July holiday in 2021.
It will be one of the two largest non-racing events scheduled at Martinsville next year, along with the Henry County Fair slated for early fall.
Full details on both events will be announced in the future.
