Folklore Festival Vychodná

International

The folk festival Východná is the oldest and the most extensive nationwide festival with international participation in Slovakia. Every year, during the first weekend of July, the beautiful village Východná, located near High and Low Tatras, becomes the centre of the Slovak culture, where the folk traditions come to life.

During its 65 year history, the festival became the most acclaimed festival of the traditional folk culture in Slovakia. The festival hosts 1 400 performers, among which there are winners of national competition of folk groups, children folk groups, groups of traditional folk music, singing groups and dance groups.

The festival also hosts traditional folk craftsmen, producers and artists, as well as numerous interactive and entertainment programs- dancing, singing and musical programs, singing workshops, creative craftsmanship programs and also programs for children.

The folk festival Východná is a celebration of the traditional Slovak folklore and its existence greatly contributes to the revival, preservation, creative development and public presentation of the rich values of our culture. Traditional Slovak folklore is deeply rooted in the traditions and culture of the Slovak nation, and this is the reason why it can every time bring us joy and revive not only our history, but also our emotions. Become part of this celebration too.
