Athens-Concord Town Social Announces Cancellation for 2021

ATHENS, W.Va. – In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Athens-Concord Town Social Committee is announcing cancellation of the event for 2021.

This popular summertime gathering, which typically draws hundreds of attendees to Concord University’s front lawn one Sunday afternoon each August, was also cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

“We’re saddened to once again cancel this year’s Athens-Concord Town Social, but as things begin to slowly improve we want to ensure that trend continues. We’ll miss seeing neighbors and friends but look forward to coming together again in Summer ’22!”

Dr. Sarah Beasley, Athens-Concord Town Social Chairperson

For more than three decades, the Town Social has offered family-friendly entertainment and fun for the CU and Athens communities along with guests from across the area.

Persons with disabilities should contact Nancy Ellison, 1-304-384-6086 or 1-800-344-6679 extension 6086if special assistance is required for access to an event scheduled by the University on campus.
