L'OsstidBurn 2020 : COVID-19


Dear OsstiBurners,

On March 23, we communicated with you our different scenarios for holding the L’OsstidBurn 2020 because of the Covid-19:

STEP 1 (March 23: Work suspension)

STEP 2 (April 22: Proceed or Reschedule)

STEP 3 (Summer 2020: Proceed or cancel)


In the current context, the Government of Quebec has asked all event organizers to cancel all festivals, sporting and cultural events until August 31, 2020. In order to comply with this ministerial request, L’OsstidBoard has decided to postpone the event until fall 2020, if it is possible to hold the event safely.



To prepare for this eventuality, L’OsstiBoard asks the collaboration of its community to select their date preferences to postpone the event until fall 2020. Please select your choices. 



NEXT STEP  (Summer 2020: Proceed or Cancel) 

If 2 months before the new date chosen via the survey (July/August), it is still not realistic to hold L’OsstidBurn safely, the event will be cancelled and all tickets will be refunded. 


You can request a refund of your ticket anytime up to 7 days before the event. Please send your full name and confirmation number to Refunded tickets will not be allocated to the waiting list until a new date for L’Osstidbun is confirmed. Note that if you request a refund on your ticket you participation in the event will no longer be guaranteed.


We thank you all for your understanding and your commitment. Please take care of yourselves.
