It’s a traditional event and one that always brings a smile to visitors faces, the Small Festival of Folklore and Heritage was held yesterday. For the eighth year in a row that wonderful festival saw the younger generations of the region respecting the history of past generations as they twisted, twirled and sung in the sunshine on Saturday.
The Cultural and Artistic Society of St. Juraj Osojnik organised this display of folklore dances and heritage from the region as well as guest groups from Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nine children’s and youth folklore groups from Dubrovnik and beyond entertained the numerous spectators, including the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic, with their interpretations of centuries old dances and songs.
A great event and the perfect way to pass on these traditions to future generations.
