No one would have thought that our town could organize an International Folklore Festival to attend so many ensembles, from all over the world. Representatives from over 30 countries present at these three editions of the Festival, which took place so far, discovered in Aiud an exceptional cultural atmosphere, in full agreement with a very open and welcoming community. A community that boasts this event and considers it from this point of view, emblematic of all that is promoting cultural and artistic values specific to each nation participating.
The first Festival was held in 2011, it involves a number of 40 folklore ensemble from 10 countries (Turkey, Greece, Italy, Russia,……).
The initiative to organize this festival came from our folklore ensemble “Doina Aiudului” who has participated in numerous international festivals throughout Europe. The idea of transmitting and promoting multiculturalism has been embraced by the mayor and gouwernament of the municipality, which made possible the development of the first festival in 2011.
The first editions of the International Folklore Festival hosted folklore ensembles from countries where the Folck Group “Doina Aiudului” participated too.
