The Jagiellonian Fair 17-19 August 2018

The next edition of our festival will take place from 17-19 August 2018. We hope to see you there!

The Jagiellonian Fair is a festival based on traditional culture from which we draw the most beautiful aspects. We aim at presenting and promoting this culture in its various forms, both strictly source, authentic ones and contemporary. Our festival refers to Lublin fairs dating back to the 15th century. In those days, trade routes running through Lublin brought to our city of culture many travelers, nomads and traders. This is why the festival is called the Jagiellonian Fair. Over the course of the past ten years, the Festival evolved and transformed into an event at which we predominantly focus on traditional rural culture as well as adapted culture and culture passed down by artists based in cities. Curiosity and a desire to learn and discover new cultures, openness and cordiality the  Fair’s participants and visitors show one another motivate us to keep building a programme focused most of all on close, direct relationships between artists and viewers. We place particular importance on the  master-student relationship that becomes established during numerous workshops dedicated to handcrafts, singing, dance or instrument playing.
