COVID-19 Response UPDATE: Inglewood Night Market 

April 13 [ CALGARY, AB ] 

 

Dear Calgary, 

Through recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we have been forced to consider the possibility of what the future for the 2020 Inglewood Night Market will be. Due to the instructions of The City of Calgary and the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol we have made the decision to reschedule the June Night Market to a new date in July 2020 (TBD). 

 

What does this mean? 

For market attendees: As of right now, nothing about the market will be any different. Our team and board are closely monitoring the situation and staying cautiously optimistic that the Night Market will be able to proceed as usual on the rescheduled dates. We will continue to post updates on our website and our social media channels. 

For Vendors + Entertainment: We will be in close contact with you to ensure the change of date is a quick and seamless process. Please keep an eye open for an email regarding the next steps on your end, along with any news and updates that we receive regarding this tragic situation in the meantime. 

We realize the hardships that are a result of this pandemic and we want you to know we are doing our very best to ensure that we are making decisions with our health, safety, and the overall well-being of our city in mind. We’re committed to being both responsive and responsible as we navigate these times and do our part to support the local businesses, artisans, and makers who rely on festivals and shows such as this one to survive. Please continue to share these posts, stay current with the latest updates, and support local whenever possible. We couldn’t do what we do without you and we can’t wait to see this fear lifted and our city thriving once again!

COVID-19 Response: Inglewood Night Market 

MARCH 14 [ CALGARY, AB ] 

Dear Calgary, 

Through recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we have been forced to consider the possibility of what the future for the 2020 Inglewood Night Market will be. Currently, as it stands, Alberta is in a low-risk situation, but is taking extreme precautionary efforts to ensure the virus is contained and hopefully short-lived.

Right now our team at Urban Production Group are closely monitoring the situation and staying cautiously optimistic that the Inglewood Night Market will be able to proceed as usual this summer. We have been in close communication with the City of Calgary and will be moving forward in the best possible manner to adhere to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol. We will continue to plan the execution of this much-loved market, but will be making future decisions regarding how we will move forward once we have more information in the upcoming days.  

Thank you Calgary for always being our biggest fans! We would not be able to continue to host the Inglewood Night Market if it wasn’t for your unwavering love and loyalty that you have shown us throughout the years. This international pandemic has hit every city on a local level harder than anyone could have planned for. It’s our mission through our events to always find ways to strengthen and rally behind local independent businesses, makers, and artisans – and that doesn’t stop now. Our local community needs us more than ever and any support you can offer truly makes a world of difference. Let’s gather together (metaphorically) and come out of this stronger than ever before!
