Events and Festivals
Veliko Tarnovo will once again host the International Folklore Festival. On July, the 22nd edition of the Festival will officially begin. This year, the festival will be attended by nine countries. The spectators in the Summer Theater of the old capital will once again be overwhelmed by hot rhythms and exotic dances from foreign countries.
The festival is traditionally held in the Nicopolis ad Istrum Archaeological Reserve near Veliko Tarnovo. It is the only one of its kind, dedicated to the late Antiquity, and has been held on the territory of Veliko Tarnovo for three consecutive years. This year the festival will be on July 13, Saturday at 10.00 am.
From 28 June to 30 June, the residents and guests of Veliko Tarnovo will have the opportunity to enjoy a rich and diverse program within an attractive Fusion festival. Fusion Fest is held for the first time in Veliko Tarnovo, with the support of the Art and Culture Program of the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo. Fusion music is an innovative art combining different traditional and contemporary cultures and genres but is still poorly recognized. World-Fusion is an art that combines the music of different cultures and from this point of view is particularly attractive to the mass audience. The significance of Fusion Fest at local, national and international level is that it will mix Bulgarian folklore with musical rhythms of other cultures.
