BRAMPTON, ON (April 15, 2020) – With guidance from the Brampton Emergency Management Office, the Region of Peel, and in alignment with neighbouring municipalities, all City festivals, events, performances and community event permits for events at City facilities and performing arts centres, including The Rose, are cancelled until July 1, 2020, inclusive, in response to COVID-19.
This decision includes city-led events celebrating dates of national significance such as Victoria Day, Canada Day and National Indigenous Peoples Day. The City is considering alternate digital options for residents to celebrate these events as a community with physical distancing practices in mind. The City is also considering alternate arrangements for the Brampton Farmers’ Market.
The City is committed to working with event organizers and rental clients to mitigate the impacts of these cancellations and to determine potential future dates once the COVID-19 public health crisis is contained and economic recovery efforts are underway. No new event bookings will be considered until there is further direction on large gatherings from Peel Public Health.
City Hall and all other City of Brampton facilities, including Recreation and Community Centres and Brampton Library branches, will remain closed until further notice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The City of Brampton takes COVID-19 seriously and continues to follow the advice of Peel Public Health. The most up-to-date information is available at www.peelregion.ca/coronavirus. The City will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as more information becomes available on www.brampton.ca/COVID19.
