SNM - Museum of Ukrainian Culture in Svidník is traditionally preparing the Day of Folk Traditions in its open-air museum at occasion of European Cultural Heritage Days, which is related to the international competition in cooking pirogi. The DECH event was created to popularize the local cultural heritage at the initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Comission. It takes place every year in September in approximately 50 European countries. This year's Day of Folk Traditons will be held under the auspices of the Chairman of the Prešov Self-Governing Region PaedDr. Milan Majerský, PhD. Its co-organizers are the town Svidník and the Rusyn-Ukrainian initiative CA.
Visitors can expect a varied folklore and ethnographic program. We will introduce our guests from Ukraine who will also take care of the cheerful atmosphere: the merited artist Mykola Harmaš (Poltava), the FE ''Čornobryvec'' (Šyšaky) and Rusinsky holosy. The Presentation of traditional handicrafts, bee products, growing and backyard breeding exhibition will be also a part of the event. We didn't even forget about families with children, so for the little ones we've prepared activities on the creative playground and horseback riding. All visitors will be able to refresh themselves in the waggoner's tavern, join the raffle and win attractive prizes.
Pirogi – ''pyrohy'', ''perohy'' are still popular homemade food in the regions of eastern Slovakia. They are also offered in local hotels, restaurants, public houses and most of the guests like them. Therefore, as every year, the international competition in the cooking pirogi (24th year) as well as their tasting from district governor and mayor will be an inseparable and enticing part of the program.
And we have one more surprise – When the light stays up at night. The project is supported by the PSGR.
We invite all the lovers of folklore, crafts and traditional dishes!
The Day of Folk Traditions and Pirogi 2019 will take place on 8 September 2019 (Sunday) from 2 pm to 7 pm in the Svidník's open-air museum.
