There would have been live music, an automobile exhibition as well as a textile market in the pentagon-shaped old-town precinct. A shopping Sunday would have completed the event. Unfortunately, the 2021 Easter Market, shopping Sunday, automobile exhibition, and the textile market have had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Easter Market, shopping Sunday, automobile exhibition, and textile market cancelled due to coronavirus
Current regulations to contain the coronavirus do not permit events to take place as planned in the near future. This has also been confirmed by the order enforcement office, which, due to the resolutions in force, is currently unable to issue permits for events to be held as usual. The 2021 Easter Market scheduled to take place in Wiesbaden from 19 March has had to be cancelled. This also applies to the shopping Sunday and textile market, which would have been held on Sunday, 21 March.
As the Easter Market and the textile and arts & crafts market will not take place due to the pandemic, Wiesbaden Congress & Marketing GmbH collaborates with the Department for Economic Affairs and Employment and the Wiesbaden Wunderbar interest group to offer digital window shopping.
Unfortunately, this year too, we are confronted with not being able to open an Easter Market in the city centre. The digital campaigns to support retailers are no adequate substitute, however, for the time being, they are the only measures possible to be implemented. Mayor and head of the Department for Economic Affairs, Dr Oliver Franz, expresses his thanks to everyone working together in this current situation.
From mid-March, the "Click & Meet" campaign will be promoted on social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Interested customers can now contact the shops, stock up on Easter decorations and goodies, shop the new spring collection, and buy the odd favourite item or two.
No automobile exhibition
The organiser of the Wiesbaden Automobile Exhibition (WAA), the Gesellschaft zur Förderung des Kfz-Gewerbes (GFK) Wiesbaden-Rheingau-Taunus mbH, or society for the promotion of the motor vehicle trade in the Wiesbaden-Rheingau-Taunus region, announced some time ago that the WAA would not take place this year.
