STELLARTON, NOVA SCOTIA – While we had hoped to hold Homecoming in 2021, COVID-19 continues to be prominent in our province. Given the unpredictability of the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Homecoming until next year.
Prior to this decision, we weighed all of the possible options to safely hold an adapted version of Homecoming. We had discussions with other local event organizers and Events Nova Scotia to determine the best plan for safe gatherings. However, with the increase in COVID-19 cases and restrictions in the province, as well as uncertainty of when these restrictions will ease, we felt the only option was to postpone again for this year.
Homecoming is a staple in our community. It offers a safe space to bring together friends and families to celebrate the history and love of Stellarton. This is a special week for many people and while we would love to celebrate with everyone, our top priority is always the health and safety of our community.
Please continue to follow the health and safety guidelines as directed by the province. If we all work together to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will be together for Homecoming in 2022!
