The Taste of Taralga Festival 2020 has been cancelled by the organisers.
Graham Lambert, chairman of the festival committee, said that the decision was taken due to COVID-19.
"When the pandemic started, we weren't sure if we will be able to go ahead with the event so we took the decision to cancel it this year," Mr Lambert said.
"It takes several months to organise the festival. So, we have decided to put it off until next year."
The festival was due to be held on October 5-10.
Last year, the Taste of Taralga Festival celebrated 200 years of first Europeans passing through the village.
The popular festival showcased Taralga and includes events like a street parade, a Saturday night dance, a country fair, camp-ovens, displays from the historical society, a classic car muster, live music, a country fair, egg and spoon races, and tug-o-war.
Similar celebrations were planned for this year as well.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman, in an address to parliament on September 17, 2019, had said that rural festivals are a perfect opportunity to show support for this wonderful community.
