The 2020 Spring Harbor Hop is Canceled Due to COVID-19

March 31, 2020

Due to the effects of the COVID 19, the 23rd Annual Spring Harbor Hop that was set for Saturday, May 2, 2020, and hosted by the Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau has been canceled.  This decision was regretfully made in the best interest of keeping our community, visitors, and staff safe and healthy. This decision had to be made at a minimum of 4 – 6 weeks in advance, due to the rescheduling of an event that has approximately 50 waterfront business participants, 100 part-time dealers and 15 full-time staff members involved.

“We understand the economic effects this decision has on many of our Lake Area businesses that are already faced with financial uncertainties.  We wish all of the Lake Area businesses the best and hope for a safe and healthy recovery”, states Tim Jacobsen, Executive Director, Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau.
