2022 Spring Fair Canceled Due to Weather
Posted March 17, 2022, 8:42 PM
Dear Spring Fair Vendors & Volunteers (CCA Community)
It is with a heavy heart that we are writing this message to you all. We have decided to cancel the 2022 CCA Spring Fair due to the high chance of poor weather conditions.
The weather prediction for this Saturday, March 19th has a 90% chance of rain, cold temperatures, and high wind. While we have typically said the fair is rain or shine, we do not think it would be in the best interest of the community to move forward with the fair under these stronger weather conditions.
We have considered a few factors in this decision:
- We do not want people out in the rain and cold. We know that most customers would not be inclined to make their way out in the rain to shop at the fair, nor would it be pleasant to sit outside in bad weather as a vendor.
- We do not want your art work to get wet and ruined in the rain.
- We will not be able to move the fair indoors as there are classes taking place in the Main Building and it would be disruptive to the learning environment due to the noise and foot traffic.
- We do not have space in the remaining time of the semester to move the fair to another date due to preparing the backlot for upcoming construction.
- We understand that typically after spring break, students’ time becomes more precious as they are dedicated to finals and preparing for graduation. This year 90% of the vendors signed up are current students.
If you are a vendor who paid for your Spring Fair registration via EventBrite, we will be working to refund your registration fees for the fair. It may take up to 14 days for your refund to be processed to the payment method you used to register. Thank you for your patience in advance.
We hope you understand and support our decision. While it was not an easy one, we feel confident that it was the right decision for the circumstances. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
You are invited, of course, to join us at future fairs! The 2022 Holiday Fair will take place on the San Francisco Campus (for the first time!) in November (date to be determined). We look forward to having you join us as a vendor and celebrate homecoming with us then!
