WinSport, Calgary Pride announce cancellation of Pride Slide event

WinSport, along with Calgary Pride, are disappointed to announce today the decision to cancel the WinSport Pride Slide, which was intended to be the public kick-off event for the 26th annual Pride Week.

The decision to cancel the event, scheduled for Aug. 27, was due to poor ticket sales since the launch date three weeks ago.

“Unfortunately, ticket sales did not live up to our expectations and with various deposit deadlines approaching, we could not wait any longer to make the decision to cancel the event,” said WinSport President and CEO Barry M. Heck. “We will continue to work with Calgary Pride in the future, including this year’s symposium, festival and parade. WinSport will honour our commitment to make a donation this year to Calgary Pride, despite the cancellation of the event.

Full refunds are available for those who purchased tickets. Customers will be notified of the cancellation and any tickets bought through Ticketmaster phone and Internet channels will be refunded automatically. Tickets purchased from an outlet will have to be returned to point of purchase.
