Nickel City 2020 has been cancelled
A note from the WNYCA President
After much consideration and monitoring of the daily changes made due to Covid-19, our board held an emergency vote this evening. Tonight, we announce the cancellation of Nickel City for April 16-18, 2020. While this may be a foregone conclusion to some of you, our festival has run successfully for 34 years, and as a board, we were required to protect the association and ensure we were cancelling compliant with our contractual requirements. As such, we felt it necessary to gather and process as much information as possible. Our hearts are heavy but we are hopeful and looking forward to the future.
Our board will be meeting Saturday morning to put in place procedures for return of registrations and next year's hotel bookings. We will be reaching out to all who have preregistered to process a refund or credit your registration to next year’s festival. This will take several weeks to complete, and we will update you on the process after our board meets Saturday. Please note, all rooms reserved through the WNYCA hotel block at the Buffalo Grand will be canceled by WNYCA; you will not need to call the hotel to cancel.
We wish you and yours health and safety during these trying times. We will clog together another day.
