CANCELLED – The New Providence Business Community, sponsors and organizers of the July 3 Celebration and Summer Concert Series, regrets to announce that the July 3 Celebration has been cancelled this year.  The impact on New Providence businesses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic has been huge.  Many businesses are struggling to survive.  Others are focused on changing their business models and delivery methods to retain staff and customers within the current Executive Order guidelines.  All are trying to figure out how to safely reopen when restrictions allow, and have neither the resources to fund nor the time to execute these large events.  Thank you for your continuing support of our businesses.

Join the festivities on Wednesday, July 3!
