Officials believe safely staging this multi-day event is not possible given the current COVID-19 infection rate in Clark County
Vancouver Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services 2022 Valentine’s Ball is canceled due to impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers hope to see the event return in 2023.
The Annual Valentine’s Ball draws hundreds of families each year for an all-ages evening of dancing and celebration. Safely staging this multi-day event is not possible given the current COVID-19 infection rate in Clark County. Additionally, the planning, hiring and fundraising needed to support the Valentine’s Ball was not possible this year due to budget and staffing impacts of COVID-19.
“We are disappointed that the Valentine’s Ball is canceled this year, but we believe this is the right decision to protect our community,” said city of Vancouver Special Events Coordinator Johnie Tucker. “We are looking forward to hosting this event again in the future, when we can get together safely for dancing, music and celebrating with our community.”
