Another Central New York event has been cancelled due to the Coronavrus. The Deerfield Volunteer Fire Company Inc. has canceled its 2020 Field Days due to the COVID-19 virus.

The event was to be held June 19th - June 21st, but the event is now cancelled. The Rome Sentinel reports that it was a hard decision to make:

“Putting on a major event such as this at the present time would not be in the interest of the fire company or the public we serve,” the announcement said. “Thank you for your past support for the field days, we look forward to the return of the event next year.”

If you have questions on the 2021 event, you can contact them 24/7 online at their website. As of right now, not future date has been announced.
