The organisers of SeaFest have released the following statement today, 19 March, regarding SeaFest 2020:
In light of the rapidly evolving situation and public health measures due to the Coronavirus, a decision has been taken to cancel SeaFest, Ireland's National Marine Festival, which was due to take place in May 15-17 2020 in Cork.
In taking this decision our priority was to ensure the health and wellbeing of both exhibitors and visitors at the event. We look forward at this time to working with you and welcoming everyone to SeaFest again in 2021.
European Maritime Day, which was scheduled to take place in Cork to coincide with SeaFest, is being deferred and new dates are being considered.
