ChristchurchNZ CEO Joanna Norris says, “We would like to thank all the event partners, suppliers, performers and staff who have worked extensively over the last two years to develop this exciting new event. ChristchurchNZ is looking forward to reactivating the program in 2022, in partnership with the festival producers Strut & Fret, and to delivering the best event possible in a safe and fun environment.”
“The event is the latest in a string of events cancelled due to uncertainty in relation to Delta and Covid Alert Levels. We encourage every New Zealander to get vaccinated to protect themselves, our community and our economy.
“We also look forward to transparency around Alert Level decision-making for the South Island, providing more confidence and enabling informed decision making for businesses and events.”
