About festival

The International Folklore Festival "Faces of Tradition" will be held on September 12-17, 2021.

During this year's Festival, the cultural diversity related to the post-immigration character of the society of the Lubuskie Voivodeship will be presented, as well as the cultural richness of 6 Polish Regions and 6 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 recipients will be strengthened, as well as their awareness of their own roots will be expanded. During the festival events, not only countries of close origin will perform, but also those representing other, also exotic groups of peoples, which in turn will contribute to learning respect and deepening knowledge about cultural diversity.

The inauguration of this year's edition will take place on September 12 at the Ethnographic Museum in Ochla. The artistic programs of the bands invited this year will be presented on the stage of the Creative Cultural Center, in the urban spaces of Zielona Góra, in selected partner towns of the Lubuskie Voivodeship and - at the end - during the final concert of Gala Tradycji in Zielona Góra. On the promenade in Zielona Góra there will be a Folkostrefa, within which the Folkojarmark and the FolkoStrefa will be held, as part of which 5 separate educational, integration and presentation activities will be carried out, with the active participation of the audience and folk groups invited to the Festival. The activities of the FolkoSfera will be located on the promenade in Zielona Góra. The FolkoStrefy will include such events as: FolkoZabawy, FolkoKoncerty, FolkoJarmark, FolkoRelaks and FolkoGranie.

We strive to organize the Festival in a traditional form, we follow the epidemiological situation in the country on an ongoing basis. However, if it would not be possible to organize the Festival in a traditional form, we will decide to organize the event in a hybrid form. We will inform you about all changes via our websites, where you will also find regulations, forms and application cards: www.rcak.pl, www.facesoftradition, and on the website www.lubuskiekultura.pl, as well as on the Facebook Regional profile.
