March 28 CulturePOP event canceled 

The cities of Avondale and Goodyear, which hosts the annual CulturePOP Block Party, announced today that this year’s event scheduled for March 28, will be canceled. 

“Out of an abundance of caution during this time of public health uncertainty, our cities feel that it’s in the best interest to forgo this year’s community event,” said Pier Simeri, Marketing Director for Avondale. 

CulturePOP, hosted by Avondale and Goodyear, in collaboration with Estrella Mountain Community College, was planned as a large scale pop-up street festival, with a fusion of arts, popular culture and entertainment, featuring a variety of live performances, high-energy DJ stages, as well as street entertainment featuring jugglers, stilt walkers, fire dancers, roaming dance groups, cosplay celebrities, and more.

“We are grateful to all those who were involved in planning this event – from the staff of the two cities and EMCC, as well as the sponsors. We look forward to bringing it back again next year,” Simeri said.
