A rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in areas of Ontario and Quebec have caused the County of Prince Edward to reevaluate the 2020 Countylicious Kick-off campaign.

On Wednesday, the municipality announced all remaining Countylicious culinary events that were scheduled from October 10-26 have been postponed.

The fixed-price promotion will happen later in the fall with dine-in and take-out options at several participating County restaurants.

“With COVID-19 cases still rising in areas of Ontario and Quebec, we reevaluated our plans. We decided that postponing the events is the best course of action, in line with current public health recommendations for ensuring the well-being of the community,” said Todd Davis, Director, Community Services, Programs and Initiatives. “Thank you to all of our partners for their understanding during this challenging time. We will provide updates on the future of these events when we know more.”

The fixed-price promotion, an annual staple of Countylicious, is still slated to go ahead October 30 – November 22. The promotion will feature creative menus, exceptional farm-to-table food, and great value at County restaurants. The full line-up of restaurants will be announced on Tuesday, October 13.
