COOKEVILLE – The recent surge in COVID cases in the area has resulted in the cancellation of another favorite holiday event, the 2020 Mistletoe Market scheduled for Nov. 5-6. Although safety precautions were put in place for this year’s event, the decision to cancel was made after receiving advice from the Putnam County Health Department.
“We are saddened to make this announcement, as we know this is a seasonal marker both for merchants and our community,” said Debi Smith, event director at Leslie Town Centre. “We encourage everyone to shop local to support area merchants. We look forward to seeing everyone for Mistletoe Market in November next year.”
Co-owned by the city of Cookeville and Putnam County, Leslie Town Centre is supported solely by the revenues from its two venue spaces. The Estes Williams Center is 7,200 square feet, and the Herald–Citizen Room, located on the upper level, is 1,500 square feet. The building houses the offices of the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development & Communications and Convention & Visitors Bureau. The Public Building Authority governs Leslie Town Centre for the benefit of the community.
