(Aitkin, MN) — Six weeks away and the Aitkin Area Chamber of Commerce had to once again cancel the Commerce & Sport Show, held annually at Aitkin High School.

We spoke to Aitkin Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Taylor Erickson about the immediate concerns of over 2,000 people over a two-day period coming to Aitkin
High School and keeping the facility COVID-19 free.

Suitable venues as replacements and alternatives options were hard to come by given the amount of visitors.

With the uncertainty of how the next 6 weeks would be with COVID-19 and vaccinations, the Aitkin Area Chamber had to hold back on their usual plans of finding vendors for the Show.

Once the weather changes to warm and sunny, the Aitkin Area Chamber has plenty in store for upcoming events.

The Aitkin Area Chamber of Commerce has, again, cancelled the 2021 Commerce & Sports Show scheduled for mid-March. The Chamber plans to hold the event again in March 2022.
