Saxony-Anhalt: Due to heating costs: Country Messe Halle canceled

Halle (dpa/sa) - The Country Fair Halle planned for the beginning of October has been cancelled. According to the organizers, the reason for this is the rising energy prices, which made reliable planning impossible. "I would have rushed into a financial fiasco," said organizer Jürgen Retsch on Tuesday of the German Press Agency.

According to Retsch, it is currently not possible to foresee how high the heating costs will be at the trade fair from October 7th to 9th. In addition, ticket sales collapsed after the Ministry of Health announced in August that masks would be compulsory indoors.

The money for all tickets sold should be refunded. According to Jürgen Retsch, it is currently unclear how, where and whether the Country Fair can take place again in the future.

The Country Messe Halle took place for the first time in 2019 and, according to Retsch, had around 3000 visitors. In the following years it was canceled due to the pandemic.
