Cookeville Cityscape’s Wine on the Westside event will not happen this year.
Board Chair Tiffany Davidson said it was a disappointing decision, but supply chain issues caused issues in securing materials needed to host the event.
“We changed the date of Wine on the Westside from August to October in order to give our supplier a little more time to secure the project needed,” Davidson said. “That decision ultimately caused an issue with securing proper fencing and borders needed by the city and insurance to host the event.”
Davidson said the fencing was needed to comply with Cookeville city codes and to reduce liability.
Davidson said the resignation of Executive Director Holly Freeman this week also played a role. Freeman is the only paid employee of Cityscape.
Davidson said Wine on the Westside should return in 2023. Davidson said the planning has already began.
