airdrieFEST postponed as City explores alternatives

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – With measures still in place to keep residents safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has decided to postpone its annual airdrieFEST until further notice.

The health and safety of the community remains the City’s top priority and Alberta Health Services has advised against holding a festival-style event at this time.

Community partners who are essential in making airdrieFEST happen are also limited by their own COVID-19 response. As a result, the City’s Community Development department will continue to collaborate with community partners to seek different opportunities for airdrieFEST in the future.

“airdrieFEST is a great celebration of our vibrant community and I am saddened that we have to postpone this important event, however, the health and safety of our residents remains our top priority,” says Mayor Peter Brown. “I am hopeful that we are able to come up with a solution for the future that allows us to celebrate Airdrie and keep this tradition going, while also ensuring we keep our community safe.”

As the pandemic continues to evolve and shift directions, the City will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide updates in a timely manner.
