The Crato Festival is postponed again due to a pandemic

The Crato Festival was postponed again due to the pandemic

The event did not take place in 2020. The organization announced that there are no sanitary conditions that allow this to happen.

This would be the 36th edition of the festival.

As in 2020, there will be no Festival do Crato this year either. The country’s epidemiological situation and the unpredictability of hosting mass events caused the organization to suspend the 36th edition of the event. There was no exact date, but it was always around August.

“For reasons of social and hygienic responsibility, the city council will keep the postponement of the Crato Festival and the Crafts and Gastronomy Fair for next year,” said the publications on the festival’s social networks on Wednesday 17th March.

“The decision involves weighing the benefits and consequences of a mass event in the current pandemic, taking into account the context we will face in August, as organizing a festival like ours requires planning long weeks in advance and investing with a high level of risk of non-return, ”they continue.

The 2019 edition, the last to be held in this village in the Portalegre district in the upper Alentejo, featured names such as Gavin James, Gentleman, Dillaz, ProfJam, Pedro Abrunhosa and Committee Caviar, Tiago Nacarato, Ivete Sangalo or Capitão Fausto.
