At the moment, the September Series of tournaments is on at Spruce Meadows (September 1-19, 2021) and the grounds continue to be CLOSED to the general public for visiting the shop, walking, cycling and driving through.
Spruce Meadows has worked for months with all levels of Provincial and Federal Governments to obtain a National Interest Exemption to operate its events in September 2021. The submission to the Federal Government included the Covid-19 mitigation plan that has been signed off by the Province of Alberta, as well as the Economic Impact of the Spruce Meadows events on Calgary, the Province of Alberta, and Canada. This National Interest Exemption was required in order to allow foreign nationals (international athletes, support staff and officials) to travel and be admitted to Canada under separate and distinct Covid-19 mitigation protocols.
With the opening of the Canadian Borders by the Federal Government to any fully vaccinated international travelers on September 7, Spruce Meadows is now able to sell a LIMITED AMOUNT of advance sales tickets to the facility on Saturday and Sunday of the 2021 'North American' CSI 5*. These are the only three days a pre-ticketed, limited amount of public will be admitted to Spruce Meadows.
