Dearest Festival Friends,
We are saddened to announce that in accordance with provincial health orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the best interests of the community, the August 2020 edition of the annual Marda Gras Street Festival has been cancelled.
We understand this decision is very disappointing to many Calgarians. Marda Gras is a long standing annual event in Marda Loop that brings connectivity, fun and vibrancy to our community, and is one of 166 Calgary events impacted this summer. However, the health and welfare of the public remain a top priority, for Marda Gras and for our partners at the City of Calgary and the Marda Loop BIA.
Marda Gras will be back in August 2021 and we look forward to celebrating with you upon its return. Thank you for your continued support and for the indomitable community spirit felt each and every year at this festival! Our resilience and love for our city will help to see us through these difficult times, and we will once again gather as a community.
Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
The Organizers of the Marda Gras Street Festival
