Important Update: Coulee Fest Cancelled
In light of rapidly rising COVID-19 cases in Alberta, Lethbridge College has made the decision to cancel this year’s Coulee Fest. Originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 18 on the college campus, decision-makers from across the college community agreed that the time wasn’t right to host a large festival.
“When we announced this year’s festival, Alberta was in a period of rapidly declining COVID-19 cases,” says Dr. Paula Burns, Lethbridge College President and CEO. “However, the environment has since changed. We recognize that Alberta’s health care system is strained, and we do not want to take the chance of adding more cases to the system. We are a tight-knit community, and we want to support our health care workers, many of whom are our alumni.”
Lethbridge College is committed to two significant priorities for the current academic year: keeping our entire community healthy and safe; and supporting all efforts to offer classes in-person for the entire semester. The decision to cancel Coulee Fest aligns with these goals.
Lethbridge College received great support from the many community partners in preparation for this year’s event. The list of vendors associated with the event will remain posted and we encourage the community to support these local businesses.
