Tbilisi City Hall will spend half a million GEL on Tbilisoba City Fest 2021, which is slated for October 24.
Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze stated several days ago that various cultural and sports events will not be held this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In order to create a festive mood in the capital, only a Gala Concert and an Award Ceremony of Honorary Citizens will be held in Mtatsminda Park in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi.
The Georgian Public Broadcaster will broadcast the Gala Concert live to citizens through television.
Tbilisoba City Fest was also held without the traditional open-air gathering of citizens in 2020.
Internationally recognised Georgian writer Guram Dochanashvili and nine doctors fighting the pandemic were awarded the title of Honorary Citizen of Tbilisi last year.
Tbilisoba is annual October festival which celebrates the diversity and history of Tbilisi.
