A contribution by Chacho Marchelli for the Gran Bal Trad
The organizers of the Gran Bal Trad hope that this message will find everyone in good health and serenity despite the persistence of the pandemic and its consequences.
Forced to cancel the 2020 edition, we hope to be able to meet again in Vialfrè in 2021 already from Monday 28 June to Saturday 3 July, and that our fabulous Festival can be the first great opportunity to return to being together in newfound serenity and joy and to enjoy, even more than usual, the magical atmosphere of the Vialfrè woods.
However, we must evaluate the possibility that the health emergency may still be prolonged and that it is necessary to plan to move the event towards the end of the summer, that is, from Monday 30 August to Saturday 4 September 2021. On that date we trust that the vaccination campaign has given its effects and that it is therefore allowed to enjoy the Festival without restrictions, masks, or numerical limits to participation.
By mid-March we will certainly be able to decide whether to confirm the June date (June 28 – July 3) or whether to postpone to the first week of September (August 30 – September 4).
We are sure that you understand the difficult situation that does not allow us to establish a certain date now.
In the meantime we thank you and wish you happy holidays!
