Pirin Sings Festival
The Pirin Sings Festival was first organized in 1962, and until 1985 it is held every five years. In 1985, this outstanding manifestation of the authentic Pirin folklore traditions ceased. The Pirin Sings Foundation implemented successfully the first stage of the program in 1997, by restoring the Festival after a 12 years period and by declaring its presence in the cultural life of Bulgaria and Pirin with the intention to promote and preserve the unique folklore heritage of Southwest Bulgaria. The Seventh Festival was held in 1999. Over 200,000 people from Bulgaria, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, South Corea, USA, Germany, Sweden, etc., visit traditionally this glorious forum of the Bulgarian spirit and take part in it. The festival occurs every 5 years.
