GLOW Edmonton Temporarily Postponed Until November 28

Initially scheduled to begin on November 18th, GLOW Christmas Edmonton is temporarily postponing its opening until Saturday, November 28th. In consultation with Alberta Health Services, local GLOW owner Shannon Van Norman has made the decision to temporarily suspend her event to help flatten the curve in Edmonton.

"It's important to do our part right now," says Shannon Van Norman. "I have full confidence in the COVID-19 protocols we have in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday season experience, and I believe in the temporary shutdown now in place in Edmonton. I look forward to seeing all our GLOW guests in two weeks."

GLOW is preparing a few options for guest tickets:

1. Exchange ticket for another date this year;

2. Support GLOW Christmas by moving your ticket to 2021;

3. Refund your ticket.
