We trust you and your family are staying well and healthy.
We are reaching out to you to update you on the rescheduling efforts in support of the 9th Annual Aurora Winter Blues Festival.
We have been working hard with our venue partner Theatre Aurora, all the Artists and their Booking Agents on rescheduling the dates for the festival.
Our rescheduled dates are Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th for the festival performances with all acts intact. These dates however are based on the Government of Ontario’s guidelines on social gatherings for groups, concerts and festivals which we are closely monitoring and are hoping for an update by June 2nd.
Music Aurora will be making announcements to our ticket holders going forward as we learn more from the Government of Ontario on Social Gathering Guideline updates.
In the meantime, we have been supporting artists and their live streaming events and fundraising efforts through our social media channels. We are also in contact with the Town of Aurora as to how Music Aurora may assist with supporting the ARTs in the community during these Stay-at-Home times.
We thank you for your continued support of the AWBF and ask for your understanding until we have a better handle on how this summer will play out.
Wishing you positive vibes and good health in these trying times – keep the music streaming!
