This summer Veliko Tarnovo will turn into the world capital of folklore for the 17th consecutive year. An event which has become a tradition in the cultural life of the town. It is a real, long anticipated feast for both citizens and guests of the old capital of Bulgaria. Dancers, musicians and singers from all over the world (India, Romania, Egypt, Georgia, Indonesia, Macedonia, Mexico, Columbia to name a few and of course the host Bulgaria) will bring colour and motion into our summer days in a way most enchanting and unique. Due to its perfect organization, exotic participants and the positive charge and emotions it brings, the festival is considered one of the most popular events in the world of folklore.
The folklore week will last from July, 19th till July, 26th. There will be many more things to see during this week – Miss Festival Contest, a traditional cuisine night, a photo exposition, etc. Both participant and audience will be sure to have a great time. All events are free of charge. It is going to be a sizzling summer full of fun!
