Today the Board of the Red Deer Festival of The Performing Arts had to make a very difficult decision.  Due to the Government’s advisory concerning COVID-19 and Red Deer’s announcement of a state of emergency, we are cancelling the 2020 Festival. Although we are so disappointed, we feel it is the best and most responsible option.

We felt we could not meet the guidelines given to us. In addition, we want to contribute positively to our collective effort to increase social distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19.

Many of us are walking around with heavy hearts due to this development, but the safety of our participants, parents, volunteers, community and board is what is most important.  We feel we made the right decision considering all of the information available to us.

We ask that everyone please fill out this form  for reimbursement of festival fees. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

We thank you for your continued support of the arts and of the Red Deer Festival of The Performing Arts. See you in 2021!
