TEMECULA ─ In accordance with the guidelines issued by the Riverside University Health Systems – Public Health, Temecula’s Community Services Department will host the June 2020 summer outdoor special events in a virtual setting. The goal is to keep the community healthy and safe by remaining active, engaged and connected through virtual special events. The city invited the community to tune in online to have some hashtag #TemeculaFunAtHome.

“The world as we know it has changed due to the global pandemic – including enjoying outings and being with our community,” James “Stew” Stewart, mayor of Temecula, said, “We have decided to hold our family-friendly, summer outdoor special events this June online. The city of Temecula’s residents are resilient and strong, and we will rebound. Temecula’s signature outdoor events will return, but until that time comes, we encourage you to visit our virtual community services webpage so that you and your family may still partake in some Temecula fun.”

The following community events will be hosted at Temecula Art and Street Painting Festival – online June 1-7; Summer Concerts Series – online Thursdays, June 11, 18 and 25 and Moonlight Movies in the Park – online Fridays, June 12, 19 and 26.

City Council member Zak Schwank, president of the Temecula Community Services District, said, “These are trying times, but we want our community to know that some of our award-winning, outdoor summer events Temecula is known for can still be held virtually.  Our Community Services staff are getting creative and are planning to offer these events online for all to enjoy.  We encourage you to take part electronically while we continue practicing physical distancing by staying safe at home.”
