Hamburg Port Anniversary 2020 cancelled: administrative order from the district office

This year’s Port Anniversary cannot take place this year from 8th to 10th May 2020. Due to the Corona virus and its unprecedented circumstances resulting following this, the district health authorities prohibited the public festival.
Due to the increased risk of the virus spreading at events such as the port anniversary, with thousands of people partaking, the cancellation serves the protection of the population. This will help lower the virulence of the COVID-19 virus. This delay is necessary to avoid an overburden of the health care system and with that provide health care to those infected and other cases of illness that also need to be attended during this pandemia.
