Edmonton’s K-Days, an annual exhibition and fair, is being postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers say.

In a statement posted to the event’s website Thursday, the exhibition’s organizers say they made the decision “with heavy hearts.”

“We felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation,” Northlands President and CEO Peter Male said. “We are very disappointed but we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.”

The 141st annual K-Days was set to happen from July 17 to 26, 2020. Organizers have not said whether the fair will take place later in 2020, or whether this year’s event will be skipped and continue in 2021.

The fair has formerly been known as the Edmonton Exhibition and Klondike Days.

Organizers thanked their partners, vendors, and guests for their support and thanked volunteers who help run K-Days every year.
