International exhibition-bazaar
of traditional crafts


from the vaulted arch bridge to "Strannopriemnitsa" hotel
September 3-6
09:00 h.-18:00 h.

As a tradition, every year in the beginning of September the Ethnographic Open-Air Museum ETAR gathers master craftsmen both from afar and from the surrounding areas to show their skills and unique works before the multitude of visitors of the International Fair of Traditional Crafts.

The goal of the fair exhibition is to present the preserved traditional techniques and the contemporary state of the traditional crafts. The works that the master craftsmen show at the fair exhibition are expected to meet certain special criteria: they should be handcrafted with traditional tools; the components and raw materials they are made of should be typical of the respective crafts; the works should preserve the connection with traditional rites and rituals.
