The intention of our invitation is to celebrate life, love, and friendship through dance and music. The Festival light motive is to present the cultural tradition of different countries and regions and to provide an opportunity for the members of groups to get together and create long-lasting friendships.

The International Folk Dance Festival “Emerald Island” is a non-competitive festival of traditional and modern dances. At the festival may participate in children and youth folklore dance groups, modern dance groups, vocal groups, instrumental groups, choirs, as well as groups and performers from other art styles. The age of participants is not limited.

During the Festival each Group will have 3 performances which will be organized around the island with a short defile at the beginning. According to the number of participants, the minutes of the performance will be defined. Groups can perform either with live music or CD. The performances will be in the evening hours so you can plan the day ahead and use it for visiting the historical part of the island, excursions, or simply enjoying on the beach.

At the end of the Festival, after the show, the Groups have a gift exchange and receiving certificates. Each group should bring the flag and sign of their country.
