Plans to reschedule this year's Les Schwab Cruisin' Sherwood Classic Classic & Custom Car Show did not work out, and this year's event has officially been canceled.
Originally scheduled for June 13, which would have celebrated its 29th anniversary, Cruisin' Sherwood was later rescheduled for Sept. 12 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Corey Kearsley, executive director of the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce, said the show was canceled in adherence to Oregon's reopening plans that ban or significantly modify any large events through September.
"Coming to this decision is a bitter pill to swallow. Knowing how much Cruisin' Sherwood means to our community, our dedicated organizing committee has been working long and hard to come up with a significantly modified event that would allow us to move forward," Kearsley wrote in a news release. "We explored several options and sought feedback from many partners and participants. Ultimately, we determined that there are too many unknowns to plan for that would make it difficult to do the show justice in a way that was safe for everyone. We felt that the best decision was to error on the side of caution by canceling the show and refocusing our efforts on 2021."
The 2021 show is set for June 12.
The nationally syndicated television show "My Classic Car TV," which was scheduled to shoot Cruisin' Sherwood in 2020, has also been rescheduled and will be in Sherwood on June 12, 2021, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the event.
