University of Alberta Students’ Union Statement on the Cancellation of RezFest 2019

News Staff - Fri Sep 13, 2019

The Students’ Union, along with its partners in the Council of Residence Associations, has made the difficult decision to cancel RezFest 2019 due to unforeseen circumstances. Alberta Health Services and the Office of the Dean of Students have informed the Students’ Union, and our partners, that it is inadvisable to proceed with Rezfest 2019 due to a gastrointestinal virus that has quickly spread among Lister Hall residents. Proceeding with Rezfest 2019 this Saturday, as planned, poses too great a risk of spreading the illness further.

Student health and safety is of utmost importance to the Students’ Union, and our Rezfest 2019 partners, who have invested a great deal of time, energy, and passion in bringing this event together. At this time, a make up event has not been scheduled.

All ticket purchasers will be issued a refund within 5-10 business days from today.
