Folkowisko Cultural Festival
July 13-15 2012
Folkowisko is the name of a Borderline Culture Festival dedicated to the forgotten culture of a small Polish village on the Polish border with Ukraine. It takes place every year during the second weekend of July in the village of Gorajec situated in the Roztocze region of Poland, and lasts for three days (Friday-Sunday) or even longer for some especially tough guests.
The main aim of Folkowisko is to promote the multicultural tradition of the Roztocze region, breaking stereotypes and educating, while having a good time in good company.
If you like folk music, history and stories, nature and open air events; if you are looking for a new experience, for anything or anyone unknown to you (people, places, activities or cultures) you’re going to love Folkowisko.
The main events of every Folkowisko are: Storyteller's Night (Friday) and Folk Night (Saturaday). But there are plenty of other activities during the three days of Folkowisko: walking tours, car and bicycle rides, workshops and games.
You can try regional cuisine and wear regional costume, you can spend your day drinking beer and lying on the grass, or go for an extreme river walk tour. You can sit by the fire talking to a new friend all night, or you could spend that night dancing under the stars.
In brief, you are welcome to do whatever you like.
