(Update: 6/25/2020): The Duxbury Rural & Historical Society announces the cancellation of the annual Clark’s Island Picnic, originally scheduled for Sunday, August 23, 2020.
It is with regret and with painful realization, that the DRHS cancels this beloved and long-standing event, now celebrating its 50th anniversary. With the continued coronavirus health considerations and restrictions, we do not believe that we can carry on with the event in a responsible manner that still honors the spirit of the event and provides the experience that visitors have come to expect. We trust that the public will understand our decision. And we hope to see you all again, next year, at our beloved property, Cedarfield.
Thank you to the partners and vendors who had already committed to making this 50th anniversary a day to remember. We appreciate your support of the DRHS!
