Night of the Samovodska Charshiya and Crafts Festival

On the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of September            

For a seventh consecutive year, the famous Old Craftsmen Street in Veliko Tarnovo will come to live during the night at its autumn celebration - Night of the Samovodska Charshiya.

The event is inspired from the European initiative “Night of Museums” and it is being held annually since 2011, attracting thousands of visitors from the town and the country as well.

As a part of the programme of this year`s celebration Night of the Samovodska Charshiya there will be various artistic performances, the Crafts Festival and a bazaar with numerous products and organic food.

The Crafts Street Festival will take place on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of September. This place is one of the very few in Bulgaria, where the atmosphere of the Bulgarian Renaissance Street has been preserved almost intact. The authentic craftsmen workshops offer unique pieces of art for the visitors coming to enjoy the Crafts Festival. They will be presented with the unique opportunity to witness great street performances and the craftsmen using original technologies and tools for making traditional art crafts. The numerous impressive architectural monuments from the Revival period will also be contributing to the unique atmosphere throughout the three days of the Crafts Festival.
