INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL ADVENTURE – EXPERIENCE – JOINT AMUSEMENT – TOURISM

Dear Folk Art Traveller Friends!

We are glad to announce that we initiate the Children and Youth World Folk Dance Festival within the Danube Carnival International Multicultural Festival that proudly carries the “Prime Class” title, the highest honour among Hungarian festivals, and the honorary title of Europe Top 500 that is awarded to the best cultural events in the continent.

The Danube Carnival was part of the “1001 Actions for Dialogue” campaign of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership; launched and integrated several EU and Visegrad 4 artistic projects into its professional programmes.

The Children and Youth World Folk Dance Festival will take place between June 14 and 22, 2014 in the beautiful capital city of Hungary, the precious pearl of the River Danube, Budapest.  As the River Danube links several nations and millions of people our prestigious Festival will bridge the cultures and traditions celebrating the youth of the world, offering a wonderful opportunity for professional development.

On the basis of widespread international demand we invite children and youth folk dance and music ensembles to join this exceptional event as an integral part of the Danube Carnival to enable them to share their national cultural heritage and artistic merits, to experience international festival atmosphere, to foster intercultural dialogue and learning, to get acquainted with the unique World Heritage sites of Budapest, to enrich with unforgettable memories, and to have FUN together.

Please, check the Festival programme, the terms and conditions of participation attached.

We hope that we can have a fruitful cooperation and we can greet You in Budapest among the youth of the world respecting traditions!
