Due to the government's decision to stop larger crowds

How are events and attractions affected?

Information regarding covid-19 (coronavirus)

As the Swedish government, at the advice of the Public Health Authority, has decided to stop all public gatherings with more than 50 people, in an effort to reduce the spread of covid-19 (corona virus), many events, meetings and fairs around the country are affected, as is Uppsala.

We reserve ourselves for any errors in our events calendar as many organizers now choose to cancel or postpone their events. We refer directly to each individual event organizers for questions and accurate further information.
