The August 14-16, 2020 festival
has been postponed
to August 13-15, 2021.
In conjunction with health measures taken for the current pandemic, on April 23rd the Province of Alberta announced a ban of gatherings of 15+ people until the end of summer. In response, we have rolled the 2020 festival forward to August 2021. Though sad, this is the safest course of action. All 2020 festival passes and banquet tickets have also been rolled forward to next year, though refunds may be requested through to the end of July 2020. If you require a refund, please contact:
