Ostrich Festival

The Ostrich Festival in Chandler in 2019.

CHANDLER — The Chandler Ostrich Festival has been postponed due to COVID-19, organizers announced.

The event is produced by the Chandler Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Steve LeVine Entertainment.

“It was determined that this decision would be in the best interest of the community due to the continued health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the state orders prohibiting mass gatherings over 50 people, as well as the current hold put on special event licenses,” a press release from organizers said.

The Chandler Chamber of Commerce is working with the city of Chandler to confirm new fall dates.

“It is a difficult time but the safety and well-being of our community is our top priority,” Terri Kimble, president/CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, said in the press release. “Based on the state and federal executive orders on large gatherings still in effect, the Ostrich Festival will unfortunately be postponed. We hope to share more information on new fall dates soon.”

A new date for the event has not been announced.
