Those behind the San Diego Festival of the Arts canceled the juried show, set to start Saturday, as fears rose about the effects of Hurricane Kay on the region.

In a statement, they said, “The safety of our guests, volunteers, artists and their artwork, team members and support staff is our greatest concern and due to forecasted dangerous weather and potentially hazardous conditions, we have elected to cancel this year’s event.”

Ticket holders may receive a refund or choose to donate the value to the San Diego Festival of the Arts Foundation. Instructions will be sent via email.

The foundation has raised more than $2.7 million for San Diegans with disabilities since 1987. The organzations also accepts donations to support adaptive sports programs via its website.
