2011 - SYMBOLICAL CONNECTION OF CONTINENTS

It is unbelievable how time flies ... The International Folklore Festival CIOFF® Pilsen celebrated its 15th birthday in 2011. For the organizers, the biggest gift was the long-term popularity of the festival and returning audience which keeps looking forward to every year of the festival and reliably takes up every place in the festival auditorium.  The 15th jubilee year of the festival was marked by symbolic "interconnection" of four continents - in addition to European ensembles, Pilsen welcomed dancers and musicians from India, artists from the exotic countries of North Africa and the lively ensemble from Venezuela.
