THRACIAN LANDS CRAFTS FOUNDATION was involved in organizing some of the most memorable craft fairs in the City of Sofia, Bulgaria, resuming a long tradition of publicly demonstrating the amazing master skills and unique craft-works of the best Bulgarian craft-masters. We did demonstrations of traditional crafts, workshops, folklore music and dances, selling unique crafts, and more!
Our craft fairs attracted many people from all generations, including media, official bodies from the government institutions and agencies, and showing them the beauty of the traditional crafts, and even more – making those people, and all guests of the craft fairs very proud to witness the unique Bulgarian culture and traditions. Our guests were able to get in touch in person with authentic and one-of-a-kind products and craft-works, handmade by authentic Bulgarian masters of various traditional crafts.
Also, our craft fairs were having a large folklore program with traditional music and dances, involving many professional groups and singers, including children from various schools, performing traditional and modern dances.
We collaborated with the National Crafts Chamber of Bulgaria, Regional Chambers of Crafts, Museums and Government institutions (County of Sofia, Ministry of the Culture, Ministry of the Economy).
Our craft fairs are celebration of the longevity of the Bulgarian traditions and culture! We are very blessed that we discovered and united the best Bulgarian authentic craft masters, who are the true keepers of the Bulgarian traditions and crafts, preserving them for the next generations.
