A crowd like this isn’t going to be permitted this summer. No word yet from the Sound of Music on what their plans are.

The Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar, announced today that the event will be postponed until June of 2021

The health and safety of all the families in our community are our top priority. Strong measures are required to manage the transmission of this virus and the timeline required to eliminate the risk of COVID-19 in Ontario will be prolonged so we believe it is prudent to take this preventative action.

There is much that we do not know about this virus – the biggest over-riding concern may well be how much we have to adapt to cope.

No word on the Burlington Ribfest or the Sound of Music.
