This Gathering COVID-19 Official Update - May1, 2020
Dear THIS Tribe, May 1, 2020
As you know, we have been riding the wave of uncertainty lately. With the health and safety of the festival community, BC Ferry essential travel procedures, and the Sunshine Coast community, This Gathering has made the difficult decision to postpone until June 2021.
Our organizational team would like to thank you all for your patience throughout this situation. If you purchased a ticket, it will be fully refunded within the next several days. Please note that Eventbrite’s credit card processing fees can not be refunded.
Our hearts go out to anyone affected by Covid-19 during this time. We will miss sharing the festival grounds with our community dearly this June. However, we have hope and positive vibes for the future of This Gathering and encourage you to join our celebration in 2021.
We can only learn and grow wiser from these situations and as a collective, our love and commitment will grow with it.Thank you again for wanting to be a part of THIS 2020. We look forward to sharing all the beauty with you next year.
~With love and joy,
This Gathering COVID-19 Official Update - March 14th, 2020
Dear THIS Tribe,
With the recent outbreak of the CoronaVirus, we want to give you some insight on where we stand as a Gathering, and how we plan to proceed as a community in these uncertain times.
As of March 12, 2020, 4:00 PM PDT, the B.C. Government announced to temporarily suspend events that host over 250 people in the province of British Columbia. At this time it is unclear how long this suspension will last and whether or not this will have any effect on This Gathering in late June. We will continue to closely monitor the scenario as it unfolds, and will make an informed decision at a later stage with everyone's safety in our mind and heart.
It is still our intention to move forward and we promise to update you on a regular basis regarding what decisions have been made for our Gathering. We would also like to invite you to join us by holding a calm and positive outlook. Our Early Bird tickets are still available and will be closing on March 15th, 2020.
In the event of an official postponement or cancellation, your ticket will remain valid for the new scheduled date. Alternatively, a full refund, including Eventbrite processing fees, will be provided to those that request it.
In regards to any refund questions, we lovingly provide refunds to those that request it, either through Eventbrite or Facebook Messenger. Please keep in mind that Evenbrite processing fees will be deducted from your refund as they are non-refundable when there is no official postponement or cancellation, as mentioned on our Eventbrite page.
We strongly believe in the power of collective consciousness and we ask for your support in expressing love and gratitude towards yourself and others. Stay safe and healthy!
~With love and joy,
This Gathering is committed to fostering its safe and inclusive community. In order to do so, we are providing Harm Reduction and professional medical service.
