Kupala Night Festival (Alexandria Gathers Friends 2019)

The three Years of Native Land was the major theme of the Kupala Night Festival in Alexandria. The festival, which was celebrated on 6-7 July, welcomed numerous guests on the picturesque bank of the Dnieper River. Participants from seven countries (Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland) performed on stage and displayed their crafts at the fair.

The Kupala Night Festival featured the art project Creativity of Youth with a show program Fairytale About a Wonder Flower, concerts of young and aspiring musicians, circus acts, a workout zone, and entertainments for children.

The program also featured the Festival of Kvass with a presentation of a branded beverage which was brewed using a unique recipe, a book fair and a book printing corner, concerts and discos.

The line-up of the Made in Belarus gala concert included Belarusian and foreign singers: Yuulia Bikova, Tina Karol, Aleksandr Solodukha, Alyona Lanskaya, Lev Leshchenko, Anatoly Yarmolenko.

By tradition, the president came to attend the Kupala Night festival in his hometown. “Here in Belarus we offer our greatest treasures – cultural, spiritual, handmade and culinary ones – to each and every guest with open hearts. And we are doing it with world-famous Belarusian hospitality. I am saying all this not because I am here and this is my native land. I have travelled the world throughout these years, and I believe that Belarusians are the most hospitable people. This is our brand, our distinctive feature,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized. “I am convinced that our meetings should be continued!”
