Dear EV Neighbours,
After lengthy discussion and consideration of public safety due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, the East Village Neighbourhood Association (EVNA) has decided to cancel our annual East Village Street Fair that was to take place on Canada Day. With the current physical distancing and large gathering restrictions put in place by the Alberta Government and The City of Calgary we are not able to continue on July 1, 2020 as we had hoped.
We are already busy planning the 2021 East Village Street Fair for July 1 of next year and are excited to bring a bigger, better Street Fair to our community to celebrate our beautiful country, the resilience of our community, and the vibrant and diverse neighbours living in and around the East Village.
To our loyal vendors, we appreciate your continued support, patience, and understanding during this difficult time. Furthermore, for those vendors who have already purchased a spot for this year’s event, we have decided to reserve/hold your spot at next year’s Street Fair event 2021, at no additional cost, and irrespective of any potential price increases or fees.
We anticipate and hope that Street Fair 2021 will be a more successful year with much greater traffic as a result of the inevitable relaxation of COVID-19 pandemic measure that are currently in place.
To this end, we hope and wish that our friends, neighbours, and entire community are staying safe and we look forward to seeing you all at next summer’s East Village Street Fair event.
