Copiague cancels its annual Family Festival at Tanner Park


The Long Island Family Festival at Tanner Park won’t be happening this year, event organizers announced.

For the uninitiated, the free festival in Copiague is multi-day and typically features live music, food, vendors and a carnival.

The plug was pulled this year for the annual outing due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases.

“We felt it was the safest and most responsible decision to wait for 2022 to make a big come back,” reads a Facebook post from the Copiague Chamber of Commerce, which runs the day.
