Balkanfolk Festival

The Ludogorie National Folklore Fest known for the large-scale reenactments of traditional Bulgarian weddings from different ethnographic regions is one of the newest and most interesting events this year. It will be held from 17th till 26th June in grounds behind Billa Store where circus coming to Vt are usually setting up their tents. The Ludogorie Fest also combines and shows to the public the Bulgarian traditions in music and cooking.

The Transfiguration Festival is another new element in the cultural programme of the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo. It will be held from 19th till 21th August at the Tsarevets Fortress and Samovodskata Charshia.

The most interesting aspect of the cultural calendar has to do with the renowned Kavarna Rock Fest and namely the possibility that it could start taking place in Veliko Tarnovo. Nothing is sure yet as no official documents are signed but talks are underway and there is more than a 50% chance that this could actually happen. If Kavarna Rock Fest moves its venue the event will merge with the traditional Veliko Tarnovo Moto Rock Fest and is will be named Veliko Tarnovo Rock Fest.
