MORE ABOUT US
The International Folklore Festival is one of the top events of folklore expressions in Croatia, namely an event representing amateur folklore groups dedicated to preserving and presenting local heritage. The event has been taking place in Zagreb since 1966, continuing the tradition of the Festival of Croatian Village Culture that was organized in the 1930s. The International Folklore Festival aims to present and promote traditional values of all nations and cultures, contributing to the efforts of preserving cultural diversities in the globalized world.
The program is drawn up by experts, ethnologists and folklorists who also collaborate with the Ministry of Culture on recognizing and documenting intangible cultural heritage phenomena. Ethnologists and folklorists are in constant contact with contemporary life of the phenomena and their bearers, trying to safeguard Croatian traditional culture as heritage.
