Festival Celebrates Forgotten Culture

Gorajec, a small village in the Roztocze region of eastern Poland, is preparing to host its third annual Folkowisko Borderline Culture Festival in mid-July, promising visitors a cross-cultural experience and travel through the centuries.

The festival is dedicated to the forgotten culture of Poles, Ukrainians and Jews who used to live in the area.

The event takes place every year on the second weekend of July in Gorajec, which is in Lublin province in eastern Poland near the Ukrainian border. The festival lasts three days, Friday to Sunday, and aims to promote the multicultural tradition of the Roztocze region, while dismantling stereotypes and educating visitors.

The previous two festivals attracted guests from across Poland as well as visitors from Ukraine, France, Britain, Spain and Russia. Last year, around 1,000 people visited the festival. This year, almost 2,000 visitors are expected.

The festival will feature a host of musicians from Poland and Ukraine as well as musicians playing Jewish klezmer music.

Folkowisko combines music with storytelling, walking tours, car and bicycle rides, canoeing, art workshops, movies with English subtitles and a wide array of games. Those partial to folk music, history and nature are welcome.
