airdrieFEST 2020

We want to share a quick update letting you know a few details on the status of airdrieFEST.

  • We've had requests come in on vendor registration. We haven't opened up registration and you have not missed getting your spot.
  • The airdrieFEST committee is currently assessing options to host airdrieFEST in the fall while ensuring the safety and well being of residents. We will update our wonderful community when we have a clear direction.
  • Spring is when we open up registration, arrange activities and hit the ground running to plan our beloved event. Things look quite different at the moment, but we are working hard to make adjustments so we can celebrate the Airdrie community!
