KIDS FUN FOLK 2017
Folkloristic Group „Wielkopolanie” was a co-organizer of International Children’s Folk Festival KIDS FUN FOLK, which took place June 19-25th. Our dancers actively and voluntarily supported all the events as i.a. interpreters, guides or technical assistants.
It was already the 8th edition of the festival held by “Otwórz się na folklor” Association. 250 little artists from all over the world celebrated together the great dance and music feast. We hosted groups from Czech Republic, Georgia, Ukraine, USA and Poland – Folkloristic Group “Marynia”, Folk Song and Dance Ensemble “Łaniki” and Folkloristic Group “Cepelia-Poznan” – a crucial co-organizer of the event.
Marshal of the Wielkopolska Region Marek Woźniak together with Mayor of Poznan Jacek Jaśkowiak and Wielkopolska District Governor Jan Grabkowski took patronage of the festival.
On Saturday inhabitants of Poznan could enjoy the variety of attractions in Festival Village. Folk enthusiasts, parents and children attended an exhibition of folk costumes, participated in handicraft workshops and learnt national dances from far-flung corners of the Earth. Additionally, on that day the winners of the III Regional Art Competiton Child in world’s folklore were awarded. Their precious works were exhibited to everyone’s content.We are looking forward for the next year edition!
