Big band dance on hold

Fort Langley jazz fest organizers had to cancel a music and dancing event due to COVID restrictions

Back in August, the Fort Langley Jazz and Arts Festival organizers announced plans for a Christmas big band concert and dance.

But executive director Karen Zukas confirmed last week that the event isn’t happening – at least not during the holiday season.

“Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the big band swing Christmas concert and dance because provincial health orders do not allow for dancing,” she said.

“We will be rescheduling to the spring when we hope that these restrictions will be lifted.”

Reflecting back on the year, founder Dave Quinn said the year has come with its own “unique set of challenges.”

But once again, he pointed out, the festival team and all its supporters persevered, overcame, and thrived.

“We are in full planning mode for the 2022 festival, July 21 to 24, and look forward to connecting with you in the new year to share our plans.”
