About festival

International Folklore Festival „Faces of Tradition” will be held on 13 – 18 of September 2020.

During this year’s festival the diversity related to the post-migrant nature of the society in the Lubuskie region will be presented. The Festival will draw reference also to the area of Eastern Borderlands, placing emphasis on the concept of nurturing Polish traditions in that area, as well as the existing eastern traditions within the Lubuskie region. Furthermore, the festival will bring us closer to the traditional culture of various nations, including the Slavic countries.

The inauguration of this year’s edition of the festival will take place on 19of July in the Ethnographic Museum in Ochla.  Artistic programmes of the invited bands this year will be presented on the stage of the Lubuski Theatre, within the urban spaces of Zielona Góra, in the area of selected partner towns of the Lubuskie Voivodeship as well as – as grand finale – during the final concert at the Tradition Gala in Zielona Góra. We will launch a folk zone on Zielona Góra’s main promenade, where Folk fair, Folk games, Folk concerts or Folk music sessions will he held. Last but not least, folklore lessons and workshops in the scope of widely understood folk art will be organized within the scope of Folk leisure time.”
