WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - University Kiwanis Club has postponed their 66th Pancake Festival indefinitely. The festival was scheduled to take place on Jan. 29.

Club officials said the postponement was due to the rise in COVID cases, area schools announcing temporary closures, policy provisions from Kiwanis International and recommendations from the health district.

Those who would like to refund their tickets should mail them with a return address to University Kiwanis Club, P.O. Box 2421, Wichita Falls, TX 76307.

Tickets purchased at Market Street or other United locations cannot be returned in-store. Tickets should be mailed to the above address before the deadline of March 1, 2022.

From University Kiwanis Club:

Based on:

  1. The recent rise in positive Omicron (COVID) cases in Wichita and surrounding counties;
  2. Area School closing recently announced;
  3. Certain Policy provisions of Kiwanis International; and
