Can’t decide what to do this weekend? Check out our guide of the best events happening in Bucharest in the following days.
Summer Well Festival – August 10-12 @ Stirbey Domain
This weekend’s main event is the ninth edition of Summer Well Festival, the place where you’ll be able to see the coolest artists in one of the most beautiful places in the Bucharest area – Stirbey Domain. But Summer Well has never just been about the music, as it also brings exhibitions, good food, a fashion and lifestyle fair, as well as fun activities for kids. This year, organisers have also introduced the Summer Well Art Collection, a chance to see amazing pieces of art, most of which are specially designed for the festival by world-renowned artists.
Night Picnic 2019 [to kick off Summer Well Festival] – August 9 @ Stirbey Domain
Night Picnic 2019 is happening on August 9 and it’s hosting 2 special shows: Son Lux and Bucharest Symphony Orchestra. You get free access with a Summer Well pass or day ticket, but you can also buy a separate ticket for Night Picnic only.
The Art of Banksy – until October 27 @ Arcul de Triumf
The exhibition has come to Romania for the first time and includes over 50 paintings, 3D objects or videos by Banksy, one of the best-known and most controversial street artists in the world. Banksy’s identity has been well-kept secret since the early ’90s. All we know about him is that he’s British and born in Bristol. His art has become a form of protest, and his works of political and social critique have mostly been done on the streets, on walls and bridges in cities across the world. Tickets start at RON 35.
Turkish Festival – August 8-11 @ Herastrau Park
The Turkish Festival is back in Bucharest with plenty of surprises. Lovers of Turkish cuisine can learn its secrets in workshops hosted by Turkish chefs, while those who just want to try out freshly made traditional dishes will have plenty of opportunities as well. Of course, the festival will also bring music, dancing and all kinds of other traditional performances. Full schedule here.
