Folklórny festival Východná 2019

Folklórny festival Východná je najstarší a najrozsiahlejší celoslovenský festival s medzinárodnou účasťou na našom území. Každoročne na prahu letnej turistickej sezóny v prvý júlový víkend v atraktívnom prostredí v blízkosti Vysokých i Nízkych Tatier ožijú bohaté ľudové tradície a rázovitá obec Východná sa na niekoľko dní stane centrom slovenskej kultúry.

Počas jeho 65-ročnej histórie sa z festivalu stala vrcholná prehliadka tradičnej ľudovej kultúry a jej folklorizovaných prejavov. Medzi 1 400 účinkujúcimi v desiatkach umeleckých autorských programov sa každoročne prezentujú i víťazi celoštátnych súťažných prehliadok folklórnych skupín, súborov, detských súborov, ľudových hudieb, speváckych skupín, sólistov muzikantov i tanečníkov.

K festivalu Východná už neodmysliteľne patria aj ľudoví remeselníci, výrobcovia a umelci a v poslednom období sú najzaujímavejšími interaktívne a zážitkové programy – tanečné, hudobné, spevácke workshopy, remeselné tvorivé dielne a programy pre deti.

Východná je oslavou folklóru a jej existencia výrazne prispieva k oživovaniu, zachovávaniu, tvorivému rozvíjaniu i verejnej prezentácii vzácnych hodnôt našej klenotnice kultúry. Folklór je hlboko zakorenený v tradíciách a kultúre slovenského národa, preto v nás pri každom kontakte dokáže vyvolávať radosť zo vzájomného stretnutia a oživovať nielen históriu, ale aj city. Staňte sa aj vy súčasťou tejto oslavy.
