New European Village


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The New European Village highlights cultures from countries with rich heritages, defined by centuries of traditions. This year, Romania, Hungary and Poland will be presenting such traditional folk crafts as embroidery, weaving, pottery, basket-weaving and wood-carving.

Textile-weaving is the most widespread craft in Romania, handed down from generation to generation, using distinctive family patterns. Some weavers and embroiderers still work with threads and yarns they produce themselves. There will be live traditional loom demonstrations over the festival weekend.
