2020 Radiofest Information
40 Year Anniversary

     August 7, 8, 2020
     Friday - Saturday

Dear ARCI members and friends,

On May 5, 2020, the Illinois Governor announced the five-phase plan to Restore Illinois based on the Covid-19 virus regression. The key takeaway from the document is that gatherings of over 50 people, conventions, festivals, and large events will not be permitted until the final phase (Phase 5). The state is currently in Phase 2 and must meet requirements in successive Phases 3 and 4 to attain Phase 5 status. Requirements to meet Phase 5 are: “With a vaccine or highly effective treatment widely available or the elimination of any new cases over a sustained period ….” This is a tall order with an undefined time frame.

So, as we have heard happening with so many other summer events, we really have no choice but to cancel the August 7 & 8, 2020 Radiofest event. As disappointing as it is, compliance to Restore Illinois is not only a requirement it is paramount for the safety of our members, friends, and all event attendees. We are now planning for Radiofest to return in 2021.

Please find creative ways to share the hobby and stay in touch with fellow radio collectors.

Best regards,

Steve Muchow
Radiofest 2020 Chair
