ProEtnica Intercultural Festival

ProEtnica Intercultural Festival

Since 2001, the ProEtnica Festival has been taking place in Sighișoara, the largest interethnic festival in Romania. It is organized by the Association of the Interethnic Educational Center for Youth Sighişoara, bringing an added value to the efforts of consolidating and developing relations in the direction of a climate of harmony and interaction between ethnic groups in Romania.

From the point of view of its mission, this festival is designed to offer the chance for free expression and a framework in which the ethnic communities in Romania can present and highlight their cultural and spiritual customs, as well as to promote ethnocultural diversity.

This festival welcomes spectators with a very diverse artistic program, which includes musical performances, dance, lectures and round tables, puppet theater, symposiums and meetings with literature writers in their mother tongue. Also, the craftsmen will have presentation stands, where they will be able to exhibit the most beautiful and representative products specific to their area.
