Concert and fireworks at Ohio State and COTC Campus cancelled

| May 13, 2021

The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) regretfully announce that the Independence Day concert and fireworks event held at the shared campus is cancelled for the second year.

In recent years, crowds at the event have consistently exceeded 20,000 people on campus at one time. Because the open campus is accessible on foot, bicycle or motor vehicle, restricting attendance to comply with capacity limits is impossible. Even though the event is outdoors, the open landscape makes it impracticable to ensure appropriate physical distancing is maintained throughout the duration of the event.
