Out of an abundance of caution and due to growing concerns about the COVID-19 virus in relation to large gatherings, Panama City Beach has decided to postpone UNwineD 2020, with hopes of rescheduling this fall. The decision was made following Governor Ron DeSantis’ statements to limit large-scale events in the state of Florida as well as the cancellation of sponsors due to corporate mandates.
While the event is not taking place next week, Panama City Beach remains one of the premier destinations for spring and summer vacations. Community leaders encourage guests to continue with their plans to visit and take the same precautions while on vacation that they would at home.
“This was not an easy decision to make but the health and safety of our community, attendees, partners and volunteers are of the utmost importance,” says President and CEO of Visit Panama City Beach Dan Rowe. “Even though the event was postponed, we still urge guests to experience our 27 miles of expansive shoreline, watersports and array of activities in the coming weeks.”
