Saint Mary fair held at the Village Museum

Newsroom 07/09/2012 | 10:53

The National Village Museum Dimitrie Gusti is expecting visitors between September 8 and 9 for the traditional Saint Mary Fair. The event marks the end of summer and the beginning of autumn with specific activities in agricultural communities.

The Saint Mary day used to be celebrated with fairs held in Romanian villages and cities, which were an opportunity for communities to meet and market autumn products – crop products or home-made items.

Several religious music moments will be offered at the fair by Anton Pann Byzantine music band while the children theatre Tandarica company will bring fans the opportunity to meet the favorite puppets Vasilache and Marioara.

As part of the fair’s program, visitors can be initiated in the art of making glass and wood icons, whose main painted character is Saint Mary and can purchase traditional products.

The program also includes handicraft demonstrations by established icon painters and launches of painting albums; religious musical moments with the Byzantine music band Anton Pann of the Romanian Patriarchy, traditional folk music and gastronomy. Visitors can purchase pies, honey, jams, sponge cakes and gingerbread, and many more surprises.
