A Halls Gap food and wine festival and a show and shine at Minyip are among latest event cancellations for 2021.
Continually evolving circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic is making it difficult for groups and organisations to present events to the public.
Grampians Grape Escape organisers announced the cancellation of the May 2021 edition ‘with a heavy heart’, due to uncertain times.
The committee made its decision to ensure the festival’s future ‘given its importance to our region, the exhibitors, our suppliers and the good times to come’.

The committee was also forced to cancel the 2020 festival, due to government restrictions on events.
Tickets bought for 2020 will be rolled over for the 2022 event, on April 30 and May 1.
Minyip Show and Shine leaders announced ‘with great sadness’ they would postpone this year’s event, scheduled for Sunday.
The committee is planning to host the event ‘in the future, when we know more about the virus that is changing our way of life’.
The event raises money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and regional projects.
Organisers encouraged people to like ‘Minyip Show & Shine’ on Facebook for event updates.
