June 5, 2020 SIOUX NARROWS ARTS COUNCIL CO-CHAIRS
After much deliberation and discussion, the Sioux Narrows Arts Council has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Sioux Narrows Arts Festival. Considering the federal and provincial COVID-19 large gathering restrictions, our festival would not be able to meet the guidelines for social distancing for the artists or the general public. Protecting your health and safety is our primary concern.
We would like to thank our artists, volunteers and community partners for their support as we work together to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The Sioux Narrows Arts Festival is a highlight of the summer that many look forward to each year, and we will miss seeing each of you! Stay safe and healthy! Kind Regards, Maury Swenson & Kathy Valentini Co-chairs Sioux Narrows Arts Council
