2020 Event Canceled

We are saddened to share that ZESTOLEDO 2020 has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past few months, the Zest of Toledo has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and sponsors are our highest priorities. In accordance with City and State officials and at the recommendation of the CDC, we have chosen to cancel our previously postponed ZESTOLEDO 2020 event due to heightened health and safety risks and concerns.

We are pleased to share that the majority of our sponsors and ticket holders have chosen to donate back to ZESTOLEDO by allowing us to retain sponsorship funds or the cost of their previously purchased tickets. These funds will be distributed to our seven 2020 grant recipients: Toledo GROWs, Toledo Day Nursery, Aurora Project, Inc., Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank, Catholic Charities Opportunity Kitchen, Cherry Street Mission Ministries, and the ProMedica Ebeid Institute. This generosity is a true testament to our valued sponsors and patrons, and we thank them for their continued support during this unprecedented time.

Please follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for the latest news and updates. For additional questions or concerns, please contact Sue Hague-Rogers at shr@zestoledo.org.

Thank you for your patience as we all work toward keeping each other safe. Be well, and we look forward to seeing you at ZESTOLEDO 2021!
