SAN ANGELO, Texas — Fort Concho announced Thursday it has decided to cancel events scheduled for September because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a press release from the City of San Angelo, the weekday speaker series programs and the Archaeology Fair scheduled for Sept. 9 will not be held.

“Staff visited with our volunteers for both events and the unanimous feeling was to cancel these events and not place participants or guests in any danger,” fort site manager Bob Bluthardt said in the release.  

The release also stated, fort staff will create some online programs in the coming weeks as substitutes for the Speakers Series sessions.

Fort Concho remains open for self-guided tours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. 

The "Texas Icon, Charles Goodnight" display will be on display at the Barracks 1 Visitor Center for another month.
