New Bedford’s Whaling City Festival has been canceled.

The festival has been held for over 40 years in what was once the whaling capital of the country in the 1800's.

Organizers say that challenging economic conditions brought on by a lack of corporate sponsors is mostly to blame.

The festival was scheduled to run for three days, next month.
