The City of Brampton has just announced that all events and festivals will be cancelled until July 1, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the guidance from the Brampton Emergency Management Office, the Region of Peel and in alignment with neighbouring municipalities, all City festivals, events, performances and community event permits for events at City facilities and performing arts centres, including The Rose, are cancelled until July 1, 2020, inclusive, in response to COVID-19.
This decision also includes city-led events celebrating dates of national significance such as Victoria Day, Canada Day and National Indigenous Peoples Day.
The City of Brampton is considering alternate digital options for residents so they can celebrate these events as a community while still practicing physical distancing.

The City is also considering alternate arrangements for the Brampton Farmers’ Market.
Brampton is committed to working with event organizers and rental clients to mitigate the impacts of these cancellations as well as to determine potential future dates once the COVID-19 public health crisis is contained and economic recovery efforts are underway.
No new event bookings will be considered until there is further direction on large gatherings from Peel Public Health.
City Hall and all other City of Brampton facilities, including Recreation and Community Centres and Brampton Library branches, will remain closed until further notice to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
