Crow Canyon Events

Cancelled - CultureFest October 2019

Cancelled - CultureFest 2019

We have decided to cancel this year’s CultureFest. As you may know, Crow Canyon is currently taking steps to address financial challenges that have arisen over the past few years. Our primary goal is to ensure the long-term sustainability of Crow Canyon while continuing to deliver on our mission goals. CultureFest was thoroughly enjoyed by many over the last four years. However, cancelling the event will reduce our expenses for the remainder of the year and free up significant time and resources for staff to focus on making our financial turnaround a success. We look forward to many more opportunities to connect with our beloved community. Thank you for your understanding and support as we place our focus, effort, and resources firmly on Crow Canyon’s successful future.
