FOR RELEASE May 4, 2020
With the COVID -19 pandemic continuing to evolve unpredictably and in accordance with state guidance on large gatherings, Sylvania Recreation and JNP Concerts are deeply saddened to announce that Centennial Terrace Concert Series 2020 will be cancelled this summer.
Together with Sylvania’s local leaders and Governor Mike DeWine, we have concluded that at this time we risk too much in having a gathering of our size venue. As difficult as it is to write this, it’s balanced with a renewed sense of confidence that we will prevail. Centennial Terrace has been serving the community and surrounding towns with concerts and special events since 1930. This year would have been the venues 81st season.
This Venue is truly one of the most unique concert venues in the State of Ohio, and I believe we will emerge from this adversity stronger and more connective as soon as we have better health and safety guidelines for our patrons.
