The Rozhen fest revived

Date: 07.03.2006

After a five-year break the Rozhen folklore fest will be held again in the beautiful Rozhen locality in the Rhodopes. Minister of Culture Stefan Danailov is the patron of the spectacular event. The date hasn't been fixed yet, but the happening is included in the cultural program of the Smolyan municipality (southern Bulgaria).

Most probably the event will be scheduled for August 19 or 20. The traditional "meeting of the kin" takes root in 1898, when the southwestern Bulgarian border crossed the Rozhen locality.

In 2000, on the initiative of the then president Petar Stoyanov, the tradition was restored. Wooden pavilions were built for the participants in the eye-filling folk fest.
