Considering the circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Organisers of the Pasaia International Maritime Festival has decided to cancel the 2020 edition, intended for the end of May, as it is not possible to ensure that the required public safety conditions will be met.

“We consider that, in today’s context, in view of the information available and with the planned gradual return to normal life, the celebration of an event that will involve a great gathering of people is not appropriate; as organizers, we should act responsibly”.

The cancellation of the Pasaia Maritime Festival is a difficult but necessary decision having to be taken in an unprecedented situation in our time.

We are grateful to everybody that has become part of this Festival through their contributions and enthusiasm.

We will return with renewed strength and passion in order to keep creating cooperation networks which are so important in these times.
