Welcome to the Malko Tarnovo Festival on July 27th

Friday, 05 July 2013

On July 27th, 2013 the second edition of the festival "Po Malkotarnovski - ot izvora na Strandja" will be held there. Traditional crafts and the rich intangible cultural heritage of the region will be presented. The festival is organized by Chitalishte "Prosveta 1914" with the financial support of Communication Agency ProWay Ltd. Sofia, the retail chain "Mr. Bricolage" - Trade Center Burgas, Guest House "Buildnix" - Malko Tarnovo and Malko Tarnovo Municipality.

The first edition of the festival was held on July, 28th and 29th, 2012 in the framework of AGORA Platform's project "Activating Communities through the Chitalishtes in Bulgaria: second phase", supported by America for Bulgaria Foundation and with the cooperation of Malko Tarnovo Municipality. The idea for organizing and holding of the festival came as a result of public discussions for identification of local problems and searching for solutions. Therefore, the residents of Malko Tarnovo directed their civic activity towards recovery of the Strandja folklore culture and revival of traditions in an attempt to preserve the local memory and customs.

This year's edition of the festival provides great variety of activities: craft demonstrations - carpet making, woodwork, basket making, a full cycle of wool processing; stands with honeydew honey, jams, 'banitsa', 'zelnik', 'tikvenik', natural products - cheese (white and yellow), butter; knitted items; training and production of souvenir items made of maple sticks; demonstration how to prepare "zelnik na vrushnik"; "Whose is this song?" training; folklore programme and "nestinari" dance for closing.
