UFEST is monitoring the air quality situation in the lead up to the festival, and like most of the province we are hopeful for rain throughout the region in the coming days.

With that said, our priority is the health and safety of our patrons, performers, volunteers, and vendors, and UFEST will make decisions in the best interests of all as may be needed. Please stay tuned to our social media and website for any event updates.

We encourage everyone to look at the air quality advisories throughout the week and to familiarize themselves with the risks, and to make sound decisions on your outdoor activities based on your personal or familial circumstances.

Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the wildfires. We would also like to thank those who are fighting the wild fires throughout western Canada.
