IMPORTANT UPDATE ON AQUINO TANK WEEKEND 2020

Due to the increasing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on everyone, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone AQUINO TANK WEEKEND 2020 from June until September of this year.

Much like other Canadian museums, the Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum has been closed to the public from March 20 - and at present; there is little indication to suggest that AQUINO Tank Weekend can safely proceed in June.

Considering the planning and resources required for the show, we wanted to make this announcement as soon as possible to ease the impact on our guests, members, and community partners. AQUINO Tank Weekend will be moved from 5-6-7 June to 18-19-20 September. We do appreciate just how disappointing and disruptive this news is for our fans and supporters, but this is the only way we can keep AQUINO in the 2020 Tank Season.

AQUINO Tank Weekend will be moved from 5-6-7 June to 18-19-20, September.

AQUINO Tank Weekend is our museum’s annual signature event and our most important fund-raising event of the year. Rescheduling this event is difficult. There is so much planning, work, and organization that we do with our members, partners, and supporting organizations to put on AQUINO; but we also realize how it affects our supporters.

With a large amount of tickets already purchased, this is not something we could ever have imagined having to do. But given these extraordinary circumstances we feel this is the only way to ensure we can proceed with the event in 2020.

All AQUINO Tank Weekend tickets will be automatically transferred and valid for the corresponding new dates, aligning with the day(s) your existing tickets were booked for. You do not have to take any action other than updating your calendar.

Here’s how it will impact ticket holders:

STANDARD TICKETS: SATURDAY OR SUNDAY

All AQUINO Tank Weekend tickets will be valid for these new dates, aligning with the day(s) your existing tickets

A ticket for June 6 (Saturday) will be transferred to September 19 (Saturday).

A ticket for June 7 (Sunday), will be transferred to September 20 (Sunday).

PREMIUM PASS HOLDERS

Premium Passes are valid for the entire weekend (September 18-20), including the new VIP/Media day: Friday September 18.

Your Tank Ride Experiences can still be held on the either of the three days of the event.

SEASON PASS HOLDERS

Season Passes are valid for the entire weekend (September 18-20) including the new VIP/Media day: Friday September 18.

CAN’T MAKE THE NEW DATE?

These circumstances are beyond what any of us could have predicted. As stated, your AQUINO Tickets will be valid on the new dates automatically. But, if you can’t make this new date we can offer the following:

  • Option 1: Transfer your tickets to AQUINO Tank Weekend 2021 (June 2021).

  • Option 2: Turn your unused tickets into a donation and receive a Tax Deductible receipt from our Museum: This outbreak is set to be devastating to the arts, culture and heritage industry. Showing your support for our Museum in this way will play a major part in helping us navigate what is the biggest crisis we have faced in our history.

  • Option 3: A Refund of your Tickets minus the processing fees which are non-recoverable by the Museum. Our Terms and Conditions are that all tickets are non-refundable but given these extraordinary circumstances we will make an exception. Please note it may take as long as six weeks to process refunds under these unprecedented circumstances.

We hope that much like us and our members, you can shift your schedule and join us in September to enjoy this incredible event and support our Museum. However, if you cannot and wish to exercise one of the options above; please contact us (info@ontrmuseum.ca) before 1700hrs on 30 April 2020. If we don’t hear from you by this date, we will assume you are content with the new date - and ticket holders will be bound by our standard terms & conditions.
