20. - 21. August 2021
It is with great regret that the Municipality of Horsens must announce that Horsens Medieval Festival will not be held this year.
There wil be no Horsens Medieval Festival 2020. This is the conclusion after lengthy deliberations in which the organisers had hoped to be able to reschedule the festival to a different date.
– Unfortunately it is now clear that it is not realistic to reschedule a festival with so many local and international participants to another date in the year given the current situation, says Horsens Mayor Peter Sørensen.
The cancellation is based on the Danish authorities’ extended assembly ban on major events from April 6 up to and including the month of August due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Culture and Event Department of the Municipality of Horsens has investigated alternative options for the festival, but have not been successful.
Horsens Medieval Festival is Horsens’ biggest recurring event and its many thousands of artists and guests from the rest of the country as well as from abroad would have made going through with the festival even more unsafe.
We have therefore cancelled the festival, which would have taken place on August 21 and 22, 2020. This year, the festival would also have celebrated its 25th anniversary.
– We are of course very sad that we have to cancel a festival that has become a great emblem of the city. With over 60,000 visitors in a normal year, this decision affects a great number of people. But we will of course respect the authorities and prioritise safety above all, says Peter Sørensen.
The festival’s 25th anniversary is expected to be celebrated in 2021.
Horsens Medieval Festival is one of many events in the cultural calendar in Horsens which is affected by the current situation. The opening of Langelinie scheduled for May 2 and the celebration of the renovation of Søndergade, which was planned for the last weekend of August, have been postponed indefinitely while organisers examine the possibilities and keep an eye on developments.
This spring we have given the festival a bit of a makeover with a new look, new website and a new name. From now on the official name for the festival is no longer European Medieval Festival but Horsens Medieval Festival. Rolex replica watches
But don’t worry, the festival will be the same.
