The 10th edition, Târgu-Neamt, January 2, 2023

The programme of the event includes a parade of costumes, masks, and New Year’s customs, performances of the bands on the festival stage, as well as the awarding ceremony.

While the locals hardly wait for the festival to begin, the tourists who arrive in the area will be pleasantly surprised to discover the authentic local values of Neamt County and will most certainly be mesmerised by the mask dances, and the characters’ display and parade, especially designed for the event.

The festival invites everybody to enjoy the She-goat dance, the Bear dance, the dance of the Plough, specific to Humuleşti area, and more.

Such cultural-artistic events remind of ancestral customs that are impeccably preserved in our county up to date, that have a significant role in promoting authentic local values and folk traditions.

Every year, the parade of New Year’s Customs and Traditions represents a carnival much beloved to all audiences that join in.
