The 42nd Solothurn Märetfescht, which had been planned for 25 and 26 June 2021, has to be cancelled again due to the pandemic situation. The relaxation measures that have been announced in no way indicate that an event of this magnitude and in this form at the end of June is realistic. The cancellation was made by the OC Märetfescht together with the City and Trade Association of Solothurn.
Those responsible very much regret the cancellation, as the Märetfescht is an important source of income for businesses, restaurants, associations and market traders. However, the health of the population still has priority.
The next edition should take place on 24/25 June 2022.
