Re:tradition – The Jagiellonian Fair Festival | 18-20 August 2023


Re:tradition is a festival of traditional music, culture, and art, held in Lublin’s Old Town. It offers visitors the chance to interact with musicians, artisans, and sociocultural animators who approach the continuation of tradition with full awareness, responsibility, and sensitivity. The festival features not only concerts, dance parties and a folk crafts fair, but also talks, exhibitions, art installations, and workshops (including singing, instrument playing and craft workshops), film screenings, stage performances and traditional games and activities for children.

The meticulously constructed programme of the event and the carefully selected artists – both those performing on stage as well as those presenting their products in the streets of Old Town – allow the public to get acquainted with many aspects of traditional culture – both in its authentic, pure forms as well as in those enriched with folk-inspired contemporary artistic elements.

Re:tradition is the response of the contemporary addressee, observer, as well as the creator of culture and art to our heritage, from which we so abundantly draw. The festival connects the past with the present – continuing the work of our ancestors, and using it as a way for us to forge our own paths and means of expression.

This festival invites everyone to take part in a journey through the most intriguing aspects of traditional culture. Folk music, arts and crafts belong not only to experienced master artisans, but also to the young who want to adopt the traditions of the past into their own, contemporary language. Hence, the festival is filled with musicians and artisans who represent the younger generations yet continue the legacy of the older generations with great awareness and passion.

This year’s edition is part of The European Youth Capital Lublin is the first city in Poland to become the European Youth Capital. The city was chosen by the international jury as the place to show Europe values that are significant to youth, to show their activities, and to direct attention to youth in all kinds of events. The European Youth Capital is a title awarded by the European Youth Forum for a period of one year. It’s designed to empower young people, boost their participation in decision-making and strengthen European identity in our cities. Additionally, it brings the energy and activity of youth to Lublin as a way to support the locals. It also promotes broadly understood young culture and youth activity on many levels. This means that this year’s festivals organised by Workshops of Culture will focus on youth.
