Westman Multicultural Festival Society Chair James McCrae today sent the following to festival planners and volunteers:
To Westman Multicultural Festival Participants:
It is with profound regret that your executive committee announces that the 2021 Westman Multicultural Festival must be cancelled.
All volunteers, sponsors and festival-goers will of course be disappointed. However, good planning requires sufficient lead time in order to produce the excellent festivals we have enjoyed over the years.
Should COVID 19 pandemic news change in the near future, we might still have time to organize a festival, but current and medium term health risk conditions indicate otherwise.
We trust your commitment to a vibrant multicultural Westman will remain strong as we look forward to happy and healthy future festivals.
