Message to Our SweetWater Friends Regarding COVID-19

                                                           March 16, 2020


The SweetWater Music Festival is taking precautions based on recommendations from our public health authorities to consider “social distancing” over the coming period. As a result, our planned Annual General Meeting on Thursday, March 19 has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a date later this spring.


In addition, our Board of Directors Meeting will be also cancelled this month. Our staff will focus on online work over this period.


Preparations for events and concerts later this spring continues as well as our September Festival. Obviously, we are regularly keeping in touch with our venue partners, community partners, and musicians as we look ahead in 2020. We will monitor the situation moving forward and will keep you updated if anything else changes over the coming weeks. Please watch for updates regularly via our web site, social media links (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and e-news, SweetWater Notes.


SweetWater will also share some of the great online performances being posted online by musicians across Canada and around the world. If there was ever a time for music and culture, now is it.


On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, please keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.


Colleen Purdon

Board Chair, SweetWater Music Festival
