Upcoming Events

Following multiple meetings of the Moonbow Eggfest Planning Committee, it is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Moonbow Eggfest scheduled for September 12, 2020. We made this difficult decision while monitoring updates from county, state and federal public safety and health agencies regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. We did not feel that we could comply with the governors’ recommendations and guidelines, and that it would be impossible to enforce masks and social distancing due to the nature of the event. The safety and well-being of our participants, volunteers, family, friends and community is of the utmost importance to us.


We will announce a date for the 2021 event soon! Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you next year! Stay safe and healthy Eggheads!
