Silesianie at Summerfest 2017

Paraguay, Chile, Indonesia, Mexico... that’s only a few of fifteen nations represented at 24th International Folklore Festival and Folkart Fair "SUMMERFEST 2017" in three Hungarian towns: Százhalombatta, Ráckeve and Tököl. Poland was represented by Song and Dance Ensamble "Silesianie" at the University of Economics in Katowice.


During 10 days of the festival (Aug 12-22), the group had an opportunity to show the beauty of Polish folklore on stages of these three towns and on the Castle Hill in Budapest The performances of "Silesianie" group were received very heartily by the Hungarian audience and the director of the Festival highlighted the high level of ‘Silesianie’s" performances. A trip was also an opportunity to make new friendships with participants from all over the world. We hope to keep in touch with them.
