BC Spring Holstein Show Announces Cancellation

March 20, 2020 @ Chilliwack, BC

Brent Walker, ON

The BC Branch Board of Directors, along with the 2020 Show Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the BC Spring Show, on March 20, 2020 at Chilliwack Heritage Park, as a precautionary measure in response to the spread of COVID-19. This decision includes the Tier 1 Judging School as well as the Youth Showmanship Competition. The decision is acting in accordance with the advice from the Provincial Health Officer and Minister of Health authorities. Their recommendations for social distancing would be difficult to guarantee in our barn space.

Exhibitors and sponsors will be contacted shortly regarding their entry fees and sponsorship funds.

Thank you for your support as we have navigated this quickly ever-changing situation. This decision has been challenging but we feel this is the right decision to keep our community and families safe and healthy. We extend gratitude to our exhibitors, and sponsors for their support and encouragement, we will look forward to a fresh beginning for our 2021 show!
