The 51st International Folklore Festival
19 jul 2017 till 23 jul 2017
The ethnographical heritage of Banovina and Pounje is the thematic program of singing and dancing, as well as of traditional customs and handicrafts, diverse and rich yet far too little known to the public. Groups that showcase the diversity of the Croatian heritage, ethnic minorities and the heritage of other nations and cultures will perform. The Festival contributes to the popularization and preservation of the cultural diversity backed by UNESCO. The program of the Festival will involve performances on the Ban Jelačić Square and Gradec, workshops, presentations, concerts of traditional church singing and world music and exhibitions, with its participants performing in areas outside Zagreb as well. This Festival with national status is held under the auspices of the Croatian Parliament.
