The Montgomery County Commerce Department and MontcoWorks leadership made the very difficult decision to preemptively cancel ManuFest & More, scheduled for Tuesday March 10, 2020, due to recent developments in the COVID-19 outbreak. While there have been no cases reported in Montgomery County, we felt that the uncertainty of the situation could impact our students, parents, educators and exhibitors by Tuesday. That uncertainty merited an abundance of caution.

ManuFest & More was developed by a dedicated group of partners with the goal of introducing our next generation to the many possibilities that career pathways in manufacturing and the building trades can offer. It is important that our students be able to interact with exhibitors in a way that is both meaningful and safe. Therefore, we have elected to cancel (for now) and preserve the financial resources necessary to reschedule the event for a future date. Information will be forthcoming regarding the rescheduling or restructuring of this event
