The beginnings of Lublin are related to a tradition of trade. As we know one of the first settlements was established on the Czwartek hill, where the fairs were held on Thursdays. Merchants from the east and west came here, following the Lithuanian-Ruthenian route. However, the fairs of the Jagiellonian times were the most popular. Those times Lublin was well known in Europe and the Middle East as a trade centre.
Festival is not only a tribute to Lublin’s Golden Age, a reminder of tradition and history, but also good fun. In the Old Town Rynek Square there are stalls with original crafts and food products from over a dozen European and Asian countries. The program is complemented by open-air concerts, workshops and artistic performances.
