The annual Pentastic Jazz Festival in Penticton has been cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Spokesperson Michael Campbell says with gathering numbers still limited and the border closed it was a necessary decision as many people drive in from throughout the states. 

“They’re making their plans now for several months down the road and well we though we can't keep them at bay, we've got to make the decision and let everybody know.”

In good news, however, Campbell says they have the dates set for next year, September 10-12, 2021.
