News about the 2020 Monte Rio Variety Show during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Monte Rio Variety Show (MRVS) Committee regretfully announces that due to the risks inherent in the COVID-19 Pandemic the 109th Show is cancelled for July 23, 2020. We are committed to keeping our volunteers and our community safe by observing the public health mandates and not exposing the production crews and entertainers who volunteer their time and talent to our local community each year.

With the loss of this great evening of entertainment under the Redwoods, it also means the loss of necessary funds for the three beneficiaries, St Catherine’s Church, The Monte Rio Fire Department Foundation, and The Monte Rio School Foundation. The committee is exploring various options that will preserve the continuity of the show and its history since it began in 1911.

Shortly we will be announcing how the “Show will go on” where your involvement will be appreciated and our beneficiaries will be able to continue their support in the community.

The MRVS Committee thanks you for your continued support of our Community. We look forward to announcing our “Virtual” 109th Monte Rio Variety Show and providing details of our raffle prizes within the next couple of months.
