COVID-19 Update

Participants, teachers, parents, and supporters of the Sackville Music Festival,

It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Sackville Music Festival. This difficult decision is made in response to the unfolding societal changes being made in response to the threat of the COVID-19 virus. The committee considered different options, and consulted with our various constituents and with other festivals, but in light of the high level of uncertainty which may increase over the next weeks and months, impacting our venue and interrupting teaching and student preparation, we feel that the festival cannot go ahead as planned or as a virtual festival. We are very sorry that our participants will not have, this year, the wonderful musical and educational experiences that our festival offers, but assure you that we will be in operation in 2021 and look forward to working with you all again then. All participants will be refunded their registration fees for this year’s festival. If you wish to turn part or all of your registration fee into a donation, please let us know.

If you have any questions, please contact Alice Cotton, Entries Secretary, at 506-588-0343 or at
