This year there will be a large selection of traditional Macedonian dishes, so visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy the taste of: gravce tavce, sarma, burek, mekici, indijanki (sweets), ecler, tulumbi and other specialties known to Macedonians from all over Macedonia.
There will be stalls for Macedonian traditional costumes and Macedonian literature for children and adults.
The Macedonian folk treasure that includes the Macedonian dances, songs, traditional costumes that first appeared in the 15th century, are a recognizable mark and are still used today to promote Macedonian culture in the world. The beauty of the Macedonian girl in traditional costume and the skill with which they sing and perform Macedonian dances, learn the Macedonian language and keep the tradition is indisputable. The Macedonian past is sung and reflected in folk songs, icons, churches, monasteries, architecture, in the folklore that comes from the soul of the people, mourned, exalted in the embroidery of the Macedonian woman-embroiderer, in the strong lyrics of our national poet-fighters and cultural development of Macedonia.
