After 45 years, the Whaling City Festival in New Bedford will be canceled this year due to lack of funding.

After an emergency meeting of the festival board on Monday it was decided that due to lack of vendors and sponsors there was just not enough money to hold the annual festival.

Earlier this year there was talk of canceling the festival has a result of decreasing profits.

At this time the future of the festival going forward is unclear.
