About festival

History of the International Folklore Festival dates back to 1964 when Zielona Góra became a meeting place and presentation of various cultures from all over the world.

For four years the festival has been called the Faces of Tradition. It brings to mind the various "faces" of customs and cultures presented by artists.

This year's festival will be realised from 7 to 12 July.

The invited folk groups will present their artistic program in Zielona Góra, Łagów and other places in the Lubuski Region. In addition, on the pedestrian zone of Zielona Góra folklore lessons, folkojarmark, workshops, concerts, folk games and others will be held. Competition concerts will be presented in the Lubuski Theatre and Gala of Tradition – in Zielona Góra Amphitheatre.
