The 2020 Campbell River Salmonfest including the Logger Sports Competitions and Highland Gathering has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The annual event was due to take place Aug. 8 to 10, 2020.
The decision to cancel was a difficult one. The Heavy Games were to host the Canadian National Amateur Championships this year. This was an extremely hard and disappointing decision for us to make and we know that this will be disappointing for our supporters, sponsors and patrons. However we feel that you will all understand why our committee has made this decision.
We care about the people who enjoy Salmonfest year after year, but have to act responsibly in order to support everyone’s health and safety throughout these unprecedented times
Next year will be the 54th annual Salmonfest and we’ll now turn our attention to making it the most spectacular yet! Stay safe, stay inside and save the second weekend of August 2021 in your calendar.
