Interesting folklore ensembles will be performing in breath-taking premises of Kinský Garden, not only by the Kinský Summer Palace but also in other parts of the garden, such as by the orthodox church.
This year the programme is held under the motto Pictures and Tradition. You will be introduced to the world of vanishing Czech rural traditions as depicted by Czech painters Josef Mánes, Jaroslav Špillar and Joža Uprka. The exhibition of original paintings is prepared in the Musaion, where traditional folklore costumes are also on display. The event will culminate on Saturday evening and during Sunday by the garden party showcasing various regional ensembles. The Musaion will exhibit traditional folk craft. Participating ensembles: the Ethnographic ensemble from Mrákov in Chodsko, Klas from Kralice in Haná and Vlčnovjany from Uherský Brod region. For more details, see the website.
As in previous years, the event starts after 15th May. This correlates with the date when the Museum was founded in 1896.
The current Ethnographic celebration is jointly organised by the National Museum and its Ethnographic departments, the National Information and Consulting Centre for Culture and the Association for Children’s Creative Dance.
