Festival "HOROVOD"

                           Authentic folklore festival    «HOROVOD»                    

      Nessebar (Bulgaria)   August 5 – 10, 2013 

    The “Zabava” folk group  is delighted to invite all the friends from various countries to come to the festival in the sunny town of Nessebar (the city-museum: its old part was included into world cultural and natural heritage under protection of  UNESCO, www.nessebar.bg)

          «HOROVOD» is an ancient Slavic ritual dance aimed at bringing people together in a friendly round.   We are fond of Bulgaria – a hearty and hospitable country – and want you to love it, as well!  Let us come together there – by the caressing Black Sea: let us dance and sing together at the show sites in ancient Nessebar, let’s acquaint the audience with unique authentic folklore of our countries, rub shoulders at the jolly-ups, entertain each other with traditional cookery, relax and bathe in the sea.   

      This project is neither commercial nor competitive: we intend to hold a festival of joy, recreation, cordiality. Our idea is supported by the town council of the Nessebar Municipality; all the arrangements will be made by “Zabava” and by the members of the international Organizing Committe:
