About festival

The International Folklore Festival "Faces of Tradition" will be held on September 16-19, 2021.

During this year's Festival there will be presented the cultural diversity connected with postmigration society of Lubuskie Voivodeship as well as cultural richness of 3 Regions of Poland and 3 countries of the World. Additionally, the Festival will bring closer the traditional culture of various nations and regions participating in the event. Thanks to such presentations the cultural identity and sense of community of the audience will be strengthened as well as their awareness of their own roots will be expanded. During the festival events there will perform not only the countries close to us, but also those representing other, even exotic groups of peoples, which in turn will contribute to the learning of respect and deepening of knowledge about cultural diversity.

Artistic programs of this year's invited groups will be presented at the Creative Culture Center, in Zielona Góra, in selected partner towns of Lubuskie Province and at the final concert - Gala of Traditions in Zielona Góra. On the promenade in Zielona Góra there will be a FolkZone - as a result, there will be 5 separate activities of an educational, integrative and presentational character with the active participation of the audience and folk ensembles invited to the Festival. FolkoZone activities will be located on the pedestrian zone in Zielona Góra. Activities will include such as: games, concerts, a fair, a relaxation zone and more.

We are aiming to organize the Festival in the traditional form, we are currently monitoring the epidemiological situation in the country. However, if the organization of the Festival in the traditional form would not be possible, we will make a decision to organize the event in the hybrid form. We will inform you about all the changes through our websites, where you will also find the regulations, forms and application forms: www.rcak.pl, www.facesoftradition, and on the website www.lubuskiekultura.pl, as well as on our Facebook profile of the Regional Center for Culture Animation.
