Along with numerous other fairs, festivals and events across the country, Mancelona has cancelled the 2020 Bass Festival due to social distancing and gathering restrictions set by local governments.  The Bass Festival committee, however, is hoping to plan some kind of a family event late summer or early fall, if restrictions are lifted.  If they are able to do so, announcements by the Bass Festival commitee will be made.  At this time, nothing is set.
