Festivals and Events in Belarus

Belarus has a rich cultural heritage and it celebrates these traditions through festivals and events. Throughout the year, there are several types of festivals in Belarus – some are traditional, some are music and theatre related and there are others which celebrate folk culture, food, and crafts. There is a lot going on for the culture vultures who want to understand a country’s past and present through its festivals.

Every month, there are Belarus festivals celebrated with a great deal of enthusiasm and interest. January begins with a big New Year’s Eve Ball in the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus. There’s a delicious sense of nostalgia here, as elegantly dressed ladies and gentlemen walk inside the theatre enjoying the live music and delightful dances such as the waltz and cotillon. In April, there is a modern art festival in Minsk where there are expos, concerts and presentations. Here are some of the Belarus events you should try not to miss.

Held every July in Vitebsk, this festival is a celebration of Slavic music and draws participants from neighbouring countries such as Russia, Ukraine and Poland.

Celebrated in August, this festival brings together the music, dance and cuisine of different countries and participants from these countries come here to showcase their culture.

This open-air event reveres fire which is one of the main symbols of the celebration from ancient times. The program has fire performances along with traditional rituals, shops selling handicrafts and local food.

For those who can’t get enough of medieval culture, this festival will be rather exciting. There are simulated mass battles, archery and you can even see real knights.
