Major Events Continue To Be Cancelled Due To Covid-19

Major Events Continue To Be Cancelled Due To COVID-19
An important announcement from Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism:

It’s with the deepest regret that we announce the cancellation of MBRIT delivered events and festivals (excluding Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run) scheduled up to and including September 2020.

The rapid escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic has created an exceptional set of circumstances for many of our events and festivals.

Unfortunately like the rest of the world, Moreton Bay Region has not been immune to the impacts the crisis is having on the events and tourism industry.

Events cancelled:
• Hills Festival (including Hills Carnivale and festival events)
• Redcliffe KiteFest
• Redcliffe Garden & Lifestyle Expo
• Caboolture Festival (including festival events)
• Moreton Bay Food and Wine Festival

Event postponed:
• Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run

We acknowledge that the cancellations are regrettable and a disappointment to many local families, businesses and suppliers, however the safety and welfare of guests is our number one priority.

At this stage, we are working closely with the Moreton Bay Road Runners and other running events, in an attempt to reschedule the annual Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run to an alternative date on the running calendar. However, no date is currently set.

The investment into our events calendar from local businesses, sponsors, suppliers, volunteers and staff has been tremendous, and these decisions have been made with great reluctance and the utmost seriousness.

At this stage, events from October 2020 have not been cancelled, however MBRIT is closely monitoring the unfolding COVID-19 situation.

On behalf of MBRIT, we thank everyone involved with our events for their support and patience in this difficult time

Times may be tough, but Moreton Bay is tougher.
