2. 2020 CANADIAN NATIONAL SQUARE DANCE FESTIVAL (Surrey)
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy through these unprecedented times or supporting loved ones through their battle with COVID-19.
It is with deep regret that we inform you of the postponement of the 2020 Canadian National Square Dance Festival in Surrey, BC.
Over the past number of weeks, we have been monitoring developments related to COVID-19. With the World Health Organization and the Canadian Government recommending self-quarantine and many institutions strongly advising individuals to restrict travel, along with the Government of British Columbia advising us that there will be no conferences or large gatherings this summer, we know it is no longer practical nor ethical to continue with plans for the 2020 Canadian National Square Dance Convention this summer.
The committee has elected to postpone our convention, and our new dates will be July 8-10, 2021. The location will remain the Sheraton Hotel in Surrey, BC.
We understand that this may change your circumstances or your ability to attend next year, and we are offering you the opportunity to have your registration refunded or rolled over to next year. For those of you with hotel reservations, the hotel will move your reservation to comparable dates as your existing reservation with no change in the room rate.
We are excited to share our beautiful city and province with you and hope you will join us for “More Fun in 2021”.
Take care and stay safe,
