Gathering on the Green updates us on plans for the 26th anniversary celebration amidst the current pandemic & concerns for the safety and health of all involved.


More details from Gathering on the Green (www.gatheringonthegreen.org):

Friends,

As we prepare for our 26th year's events in July, we are faced with unprecedented challenges related to COVID-19.  The coronavirus has impacted virtually every industry and the live event business is in a particular fluid state as some events continue as planned, while others are being postponed or canceled. 

The safety of our friends, volunteers, employees, partners, and artists is our highest priority and we will do everything possible to ensure a safe operating environment at our event site at Rotary Park in Mequon.  Information provided by public officials, healthcare professionals, and industry experts will guide our decisions in the coming months.

That said, any decision to alter Gathering on the Green 2020 is a future decision. At the current time, we are moving forward as planned and look forward to welcoming everyone on July 10 & 11.

We are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 virus and will continue to do so on a daily basis.  Similar to other large events and major league sports venues in Wisconsin – as well as other festivals worldwide – Gathering on the Green, Inc. will make decisions based on the best information available at that time.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of Gathering on the Green as well as your continued engagement with us during this unprecedented time.

On Saturday from 10:30 until 2pm we treat our patrons to a musical brunch, when all of our All-star musicians play for their pleasure while everyone enjoys a delicious brunch.  During the last hour we have a “jam” when the patrons who are musicians have the opportunity to play with the All-stars.  Fun for all!


Our local artist for 2020 will be Elizabeth Singletary!

Elizabeth's art form is paper collage. She hides secret imagery in each piece, giving gazers a happy little hunt-and-find exercise each time they look at her collages. This fun and lively approach to art has garnered much attention.

She was chosen as the featured artist of the North Carolina Azalea Festival in 2013. Her interpretation of azaleas and butterflies became the official festival poster, for which she received a bronze medal in an international competition. Elizabeth was a 2014 Wilma Magazine's "Women to Watch" finalist. She was voted "Best Local Artist" in 2015 by Encore Magazine's Best of Wilmington.


We can't wait to see what she will create for the NC Jazz Festival!
