We strictly abide by all guidance and protocols set out by the Province of British Columbia which may result in cancellation or postponement of this event on short notice (see Refund Policy below). In addition, all participants must present scannable proof of full vaccination with personal identification at the time of event check-in and remain masked except when consuming food or beverages. Public Health requirements also currently direct that participants are to remain seated while indoors.

It is the personal responsibility of any participant feeling unwell, manifesting COVID-19 symptoms, or having been told to self-isolate by Public Health (or any other medical practitioner) to not attend this event.

REFUND POLICY

Full refunds will be issued including any Eventbrite fees should it become necessary to cancel this event due to changing COVID guidance or protocols.

Since we have no control over Mother Nature we reserve the right to cancel or postpone this event up to 09:00 AM on the day of the event should we in our sole discretion deem the prevailing weather or the conditions for harvesting be either unsafe and/or unfavourable (absence of harvestable truffles). Full refunds will be issued including any Eventbrite fees if we cancel the event.

Lastly, Public Health may mandate reduced venue capacities and in such case we will endeavour to hold a repeat event so participants can be accommodated appropriately.

Given that food and beverage preparation and the number of people we will need to have on hand are predicated on the number of tickets sold, no refunds will be paid if you cancel on the day of the event. Should you cancel for any reason prior to then, you will be entitled to receive a full refund except for any Eventbrite fees paid.
