Delta events cancelled, postponed through the end of August

The status of fall events is TBD depending on the state of the current COVID-19 pandemic

It’ll be at least early September before the City of Delta resumes hosting community events.

According to a recent memo to council, all city-hosted events have been cancelled or postponed through to the end of August.

The memo notes that some small-scale events in the coming months, such as concerts in the park or outdoor movie nights, could be rescheduled “subject to the guidance provided by the Provincial Health Services Authority and availability of the provider,” but that the same won’t be possible for most large events as they require longer to plan.
