Cancellation of Summer Festival 2020
17 April 2020
 

We regret to inform that it was decided during the General Meeting in April that the Summer Festival 2020, initially scheduled for 1 & 2 August, will be cancelled due to the worsening COVID-19 situation.

 
The event was cancelled for the following reasons:
Serious preventive measures must be taken to tackle the worsening COVID-19 situation around the world
 
A prompt decision must be made as the Summer Festival, that has seen an attendance of 40,000 people, requires multifaceted preparation
 

even if the situation within Singapore improves, it is unclear if the current measures will be lifted and what kind of measures will be implemented against large-scale events in August

 
The event cannot be postponed to September or later due to the
unavailability of the National Stadium
 
Amongst the announcement of the possible scaling down of the National Day Parade in August and the postponement and cancellation of events around the world held during this period, we have decided that it would be difficult to continue with this event. We hope for your kind understanding.

We understand that this is disappointing news to those who have been looking forward to the event as we had previously announced in the April issue of The Southern Cross newsletter that we were planning to hold the Summer Festival 2020. We would like to apologise to those who were considering supporting the event, be it as sponsors, through the support fund, as volunteers, as performers or as booth vendors, for the inconvenience caused.

We sincerely hope for the improvement of the COVID-19 situation and for the safety and health for all our members.
