Festival Cancellation 2020
Because of the current uncertainty situation and due to the evolution of the pandemic, we are forced to cancel the edition 2020 of the Festival Cavalls del Vent that should take place the next 12 to 13 September.
After valuing various alternatives, we consider this to be the best decision, because we cannot guarantee 100% the safety of participants, of the volunteers or the people of the territory according to the protocols set by the health authorities.
Just as we got engaged, we will make a full refund of the amount of the registration.
Remember that the crossing is operating normally, so if you feel like taking the route, We will be happy to welcome you!
Next year we'll be back!!!
