15th International Festival "St. George's Fun"
26 May 2021

For the 15th time on the stage under the Kremikovtsi Monastery was held the International Festival "St. George's Fun". The organizer of the festival is the community center "Svetlina Kremikovtsi - 1906".
More than 700 performers captivated us with the beauty of music, dance and song. Hundreds were present, who had the opportunity on a sunny Saturday to enjoy rhythms, dances and costumes, to honor the ancient monastery church of St. George, to light a candle for health and to taste the delicious sacrifice that Father Seraphim had organized.
