The Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia announces today that the 2020 Nova Scotia Craft Beer Festival scheduled for March 21st has been cancelled. The health and safety of the public and brewery employees, must be our top priority.
This decision was made after consultation with the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the Public Health Agency of Canada. It is clear that public health experts are advising against large gatherings as a key measure to contain COVID 19.
We understand some of our ticket holders may be disappointed, however, we fully respect and agree with the advice provided by public health professionals and we feel the responsible measure is to cancel the festival at this time.
We will be providing refunds to those who have already purchased tickets to the event and our ticket provider will contact all current ticket holders directly in the coming hours.
