THESSALONIKI — The Europride Festival due to be held in Thessaloniki at the end of June has been cancelled as a measure to contain the spread of coronavirus, the festival's board announced on Wednesday.

The same announcement said that there is collaboration wth the European Federation of Pride Organisers to examine possible alternative solutions in the following years, adding a a series of events will be held in September and in October 2020 in Thessaloniki adjusted the new coronavirus reality.
