Maritime Days is one of Finland's largest summer events, and it gathers a total of more than 200,000 visitors a year in four days.

The next Maritime Days will be held on July 27-30, 2022, when the 60th anniversary of the event will be celebrated, says the City of Kotka.

Major summer events have previously been canceled, including Seinäjoki Province and Tango Market, Ilosaarirock in Joensuu, Ruisrock in Turku, the Flow Festival in Helsinki and Pori Jazz.

Yle canceled the cancellation of the Maritime Days earlier.
