Theatre Alberta member Events Wood Buffalo’s Board of Directors voted to end operations on February 3, 2014. Board president Greg Butters told Fort McMurray Today that Events Wood Buffalo has ceased operations, vacated its place in the Kirschner Building, and is in the process of selling off its assets.
Events Wood Buffalo is currently working with the city to come to an agreement on the sale of some the organization’s assets. The city will update council at its next meeting March 25.
“In the short term, any traditional events that are held every year, the municipality will be directly involved with staging them,” says Sudhir Sandhu, Executive Director of Corporate and Community Services, Fort McMurray. “There will be a Canada Day event. There will be InterPlay, just as there was a very successful WinterPlay. Those events will carry on.”
