Much like other events around the country, MackFest 2020 is in a holding pattern.

The event is still scheduled for Saturday, July 18, and organizers have not made any decisions regarding holding, delaying or canceling the event. However, if MackFest is held, it will be a complete event like in years past.

Organizers are watching the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and will err on the side of caution as the event draws closer.

MackFest is held in honor of Pat Mackesey, former businessman, community supporter and village president in Cottage Grove.

Proceeds from the event benefit Monona Grove High School scholarships.
