Cultural events

National Festival of Literature and Folklore Spring Harmonies

National Festival of Literature and Folklore Spring Harmonies
The festival is divided into two main sections, literature and folklore, and it carries on in this format since the first edition.

Literature Day is centered on the award ceremony of the literary contest, poetry debut (volume in manuscript) and volume of poetry. The first part is addressed mainly to the young, pupils and students. The contest of volume in manuscript is open to all creators, irrespective of age, who have not yet made their debut with a volume. Also, a contest of poetry volumes published since the previous edition is organized. It is open to all creators, members or not of the Writers Union. Panels and literary debates, attended by writers from Bucharest, Cluj - Napoca, Baia Mare, Satu Mare, Bistriţa, come to complete this event.
Folklore Day begins with a parade of costumes (uptown), followed by a folklore performance sustained by folkloric ensembles from several counties.

We convey to the public in Vişeu the idea of 'unity in diversity' of the Romanian culture by joining songs and dances from different ethnographic regions of the country, brought along by folkloric ensembles and representative performers. Despite the notion that folklore does not attract young people, we can say that, in our case, young people are one of our target audiences, both in terms of the artistic act in itself and by reason of strengthening in their consciousness a sense of belonging to traditional values of the historical Maramureş. However, we can say that this kind of event responds to the needs of a very broad category of public, of all ages.
