COVID-19 - Extreme Mudfest 2020 - Bonnyville, Alberta

Dear Mudders,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Alberta has banned all gatherings of more than 15 people for an indefinite period of time that covers at least the summer festival season. With this announcement, along with our continuing concern for the safety of our community, it is with a heavy heart we must postpone Extreme Mudfest until it is safe to host our event and welcome our Mudfest family back together.

“This announcement has left us extremely saddened as we write this. Although we were aware of the possibility of needing to postpone our event, it does not make it any easier. Mudfest has been a community effort since day one. Everyone has put in a lot of hard work to build this to where we are today – we couldn’t be prouder of this team and this community. We have created a family with Mudfest and we are heartbroken that we will need to postpone. With that said, we are here to stay and we will come back stronger than ever when it is deemed safe to do so. Until then, please stay safe out there and take care of one another.” – Billie-Jo Aasen, Executive Producer of Extreme Mudfest.

Mudfest is a family and WE WILL get through this together. Our refund window is now closed and all tickets and registrations will automatically be rolled over for the rescheduled dates, slated for August 12th-15th, 2021. As a thank-you to our loyal fans who have purchased tickets and chose to roll those tickets over to our new scheduled dates, we will be supplying each of you with a gift package that will be available for pick up, under your name, at the festival. This package will include four (4) free drink tokens and a gift certificate for select promotional merchandise items as a thank you for all of your support as we navigate our way through the pandemic. More information on how to receive your promotional items will be emailed out closer to the festival date.

We are a small family ran business and this has hit us hard as there is currently no financial aid for festivals. From the bottom of our hearts we appreciate all of your support.  Thank you for sticking with us! Our refund window is now closed (effective May 08th, 2020 at 5pm EST.)  If you did not fill in the form, your tickets will now be automatically rolled over to the new dates and you will receive them in the fall. Please delete your 2020 tickets so that you do not confuse them with your 2021 tickets. We are a big family here and when this is all over, we will throw one heck of a party to celebrate!

“It’s a sad day to say that motorsports racing with not be in our Lakeland area this summer after 18 straight years. But we will take this time to innovate and come back with a newly designed track and be stronger than ever! From all of us at Mudfest, we love and are with you. We will see you soon!” – Rick Reddecliff – Executive Race Producer of Extreme Mudfest.

Let’s take this time to reconnect with family, get back to the simpler joys and take care of one another. We like to get our hands dirty as much as you do, but for now wash your hands, practice self isolation and social distancing so that we can get back to doing what we love and being together. We will see you in the MUD very soon!
