CHANDLER CHAMBER OSTRICH FESTIVAL TO BE POSTPONED

The Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival will be postponed. The Chandler Chamber of Commerce, in
partnership with the City of Chandler, determined that this decision is in the best interest in the
safety and well-being of the community.

The Chamber and City of Chandler will work together to find an alternative date for the popular
festival. All purchased tickets will be honored on those dates. Information on refunds for
festival-goers who can’t attend on that date will be available at a later time.

“This was not an easy decision and certainly not one we took lightly,” said Terri Kimble,
President/CEO of the Chandler Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber and our partner, SLE have taken
extraordinary efforts to ensure the safety of the public, however in wake of the President’s
Declaration of National Emergency, and the state’s Declaration of Public Health Emergency we feel
it is in the best interests of our attendees, staff, vendors and all people involved that the
festival is postponed. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public
health officials and the CDC.”

This will be the first time in 32 years that the event has been forced to postpone but it is now
unavoidable as the health and wellness of the community is the number one priority. More
information on the re-scheduled event will be released as soon as it’s available.
