About festival

International Folklore Festival „Faces of Tradition” will be held on 17 – 20th of September 2020

Due to the epidemiological situation and  the risk of SARS-CoV-2 in Poland and the world, we have made the decision to change the format of this year's International Folklore Festival „Faces of Tradition” and move to an online edition.

The performances of this year’s invited ensembles will be displayed on the large outdoor screens at Theatre Square at the Lubuskie Theater in Zielona Góra, and in the selected park in one of Zielona Góra's neigbourhoods, as well as being streamed online. There will also be a folkzone at the Theatre Square at the Lubuskie Theater in Zielona Góra.

During the festival, folklore of foreign groups from Algeria, Nepal, Turkey, Germany, Senegal and Ukraine, as well as 15 Polish regions will be presented. The event as usual will be hosted by Lubuski Zespół Pieśni I Tańca im. Ludwika Figasa.

Apart from the online screenings  during the festival there will be also live stageperformaces provided by invited guests from lubuskie region, which will takeplace on the outdoor summer stage of the Lubuski Theater.
