On behalf of Wabamun Council and with great regret, I must announce the cancellation of the Dragonfly Festival for 2020. Like so many communities around the world, we really have to be put public health first and foremost. The large crowds that attend the festival each year make this an unnecessary health risk at this time. While there is a slight chance things may change before June 26th, the countless hours put in by our volunteers in planning to make the event a success requires they receive as much advanced notice as possible.
While this is bad news for sure, I remain hopeful that at some point this summer we will still be able to host an event or two, once the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us. We are also planning a block party program that we hope to kick off this summer so we can celebrate together as a community one block at a time.
Stay safe & look after each other.
Mayor Charlene Smylie
