Folk groups from around the world present their culture
countries in Lviv. Impressive performances of ensembles, marching parades of participants the main streets of the city, showing folk costumes, evenings of friendship and dance master classes are just a part of the actions that take place under time “Etnovyr”.
For the first time “Etnovyr” took place on the territory of the Potocki Palace. It was built exclusive EthnoArena. He erected a giant snow-white awning structure on locations, our constant technical partner is Orent. Their awnings and pavilions that can be rented have repeatedly saved participants and guests festival from the sun and rain.
We are traditionally grateful to our warm partner for the cozy atmosphere – Lviv Candle Manufactory. When a candle is more than light!
