Krakow's August folk festival 

Fair of Folk Art in Krakow. 

Every summer in August the Fair of Folk Art (Targi Sztuki Ludowej in Polish) takes place in Krakow on the Old Towns scenic Rynek Glowny central square. Its rows of stalls tempt spectators and potential buyers with their sundry and colorful merchandise. Most of the goods may look antiquated and often even exotically archaic though actually they are brand-new products of the traditional village crafts and arts: embroidery, pottery, painting, iron, metalwork, woodcarving, etc.

The performing arts are represented too, in the form of live gigs by acts specializing in traditional village tunes and songs.

And last but not least the Krakow Fair of Folk Art provides the opportunity to taste the traditional village foods and stock up the fridge when one enjoys them.

 

Cepelia Folk Art Fair on the Krakow Square. 

The Folk Art Fair in Krakow has been one of the city’s summer attractions since 1972. There were some disruptions so the 40th International Fair of Folk Art fell on year 2016. The event is sometimes teasingly referred to as “Cepeliada” because the organizers have been associated with the Cepelia enterprise in its varied manifestations.
