The "Yerevan Wine Days" festival was held again this year, despite the strong criticism that was voiced on social networks. Many were indignant that such a party was planned in a country with thousands of victims after the defeat in the Artsakh war. However, the organizers of the traditional wine festival did not cancel it, the wine days passed as usual. Many tourists and locals took part in the event. According to the organizers, the festival was held to support small and medium-sized businesses, to alleviate the consequences of the already difficult year of the coronavirus․ Yerevan Wine Days have been organized since 2017, on the first Friday and Saturday of May, in several central streets of Yerevan. Last year the festival did not take place, first it was moved due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus, then it was decided to cancel it.
