April 28, 2020 (STRATHMORE, AB) – Due to the health risks associated with the current COVID-19 global pandemic and the ban on public events through to the end of the summer announced by the Province of Alberta, the Strathmore & District Agricultural Society has announced the cancellation of the 2020 Strathmore Stampede.
The 2020 Strathmore Stampede was scheduled for the August long weekend at the Agriterra Strathmore AG Stadium.
The Board of Directors of the Ag Society met by conference call on the evening of April 27, 2020 to formalize the decision. “We’re making this announcement with heavy hearts, but with the clear understanding that there really was no other option both to protect the health of our loyal fans and to respect the decisions taken by the Province of Alberta,” said Stef Leblanc, President of Board of Directors of the Ag Society.
“But we are a strong organization and a strong community, we’ll all get through this pandemic together and Strathmore Stampede 2021 will be better than ever.”
All tickets, Stampede camping and parking, sponsorship, vendor and trade show deposits will be automatically refunded within 60 days; there is no need to contact the office, everything will be done automatically.
The Ag Society is currently operating with reduced staffing and is asking for patience as they work through the many refunds as efficiently as possible.
For ticket holders that wish to have their 2020 ticket purchase payment put towards the 2021 Stampede, please write to the office at firstname.lastname@example.org and your seats will be locked in for next year.
The Strathmore & District Agricultural Society is thankful for the strong support of the community, the Town of Strathmore, Wheatland County and its many loyal Stampede fans, volunteers and sponsors.
