FANØ KNITTING FESTIVAL

WE CANCEL AND POSTPONE  FANØ KNITTING FESTIVAL TILL 2021

WE CANCEL AND POSTPONE FANØ KNITTING FESTIVAL TILL 2021

We have been struggling hard to adjust to various guidelines set out by the Danish authorities and have along the way kept our optimism in regards to carrying through with the festival. Unfortunately, things have not been moving in the right directions in fighting covid 19, and the latest infection rates in Europe have been quite disturbing.

However, the decisive fact has been, that tonight it was announced that the number of people gathering will not be raised as expected. We have made many adjustments in our set-up, both in decreasing the number of tickets sold and how to adapt our festival areas. Our security plans have been adjusted also in order to meet all requirements of distance, etc., but we do, of course acknowledge and respect the precautions of distance for a big event like ours. After all, we do come to Fanø Knitting festival to get together and to have fun.

Therefore, we made the very difficult decision to postpone our festival and our 15th anniversary to 2021.

MANY CANCELLATIONS FROM ABROAD

MANY CANCELLATIONS FROM ABROAD

For the past days we have spoken to many of our guests, teachers, artists and vendors, especially from abroad, who all have expressed their concerns for participating in the festival due to covid-19. We do wish, of course, that both vendors and our guests have the best time, but as we look at it now, the conditions for this are no longer present for 2020. 

The year of 2020 has been a strange year for all of us, so therefore we are looking so much more forward to Fanø Knitting festival 2021.

 

SAME PROGRAM FOR  2021

SAME PROGRAM FOR 2021

The entire program for 2021 will be the same as this year. Therefore, we encourage you to keep your tickets, UNLESS you do not wish to participate in 2021. Then we will make a refund

Everyone, who has bought a ticket, will be contacted by us by mail.

We do of course hope, that we will not be so vulnerable to covid-19 as we are now. Therefore, we will plan for an AMAZING, though delayed, knitting festival and 15th years' anniversary from the 16th - 19th of september 2021.

All cancelled tickets will be put up for sale again from August 22nd, 2020, as our 2021 program will not change much.

If you wish to keep your ticket for 2021, our ordinary cancellation terms will be valid. That means, that if you decide to cancel up till August 1st, 2021 you can do so against a cancellation fee.
