Event description
Due to the recent release of new Covid-19 restrictions on social gatherings the Kalein Centre has decided to postpone The Festival of Light.

About this Event

Today the BC Government announced that all indoor and outdoor community and social events are suspended for the next 2 weeks, with possible and likely extensions beyond that.

We are saddened by this news as plans were well underway to create a safe and sacred space to share with you this year. We are committed to providing you with an event and space that will bring our community together, and hope that as the situation changes we will be able to move forward with the event at a later date.

We will take a break over December to get creative and hope the restrictions ease up for the new year. We are considering the new, penciled in, date to be Family Day on February 15th, 2021.

Thank you for your understanding and support of the Kalein Center and the Festival of Light.

TICKET REFUNDS : You will be issued a full refund for your ticket.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at our next event in the near future!

In Light and Love until the new year...

Please disregard information below. This is not for the new event just yet. Thank you for your patience.
