It is with deep regret that we cancel the Midwest Sugar Art Show.  We were looking forward to having a great show and giving you an amazing opportunity to learn, compete and share.  With many Covid-19 concerns still at the forefront of social decision making, we have found ourselves in a position to make the difficult decision to cancel the show.  Unfortunately, we cannot move forward with the show, without making many concessions and adjustments to our plans. We would like to thank everyone who supported this effort three times over! At this time, we will not be rescheduling. We hope to plan some version of this show, at some point in the future. Please be assured that all registration funds will be returned. Registrants will be contacted with details in the next few days.
