Stewartstown NH: (October 23, 2020) Despite all-out efforts by North Country Chamber of Commerce, the 2021 GoNorth Snofest , scheduled for March 5th & 6th , is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The North Country Chamber of Commerce along with the personnel from the New Hampshire Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, Division of Parks & Recreation (DNCR) feel that holding the event would not be in the best interest of the community. The North Country Chamber of Commerce fully supports the decision-making process and appreciates the need to safeguard the health of the town and surrounding communities.
The fiscal role and economic impact that the Snofest event plays in funding local clubs, local businesses, and the snowmobile manufacturers makes canceling all the more difficult. “This event truly represents a celebration of winter in the North Country and with the current COVID Guidelines in place, the committee feels that we are not able to produce the experiences that snowmobilers are looking for. An event of this size and scope is not possible without the generous support of our sponsors as well as countless volunteers,” said Gail Hanson, Event Coordinator.
We wish to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for their unwavering support. The State of New Hampshire, snowmobile community, town officials, emergency responders, vendors, volunteers, and residents have been instrumental in the success the GoNorth Snofest. The North Country Chamber of Commerce thanks all for understanding and are already planning for an exciting return in 2022.
