Kupala Night is an old Polish and Slavic tradition celebrating midsummer night, with artistic performances of folk dance and song as well as a range of family friendly activities.
Slavic Inspirations cordially invites you to 'Midsummer Night' in Limerick.
The event will be launched with artists and craftsmen from Slavic countries presenting their work. Once again, there will be organised outdoor workshops, playing with clay, plaiting garlands, Slavic yoga, a fairy tale tent, just some of the activities planned for children and adults.
There will also be a historical demonstration, recreating the old Slavs - Brave warriors will present their equipment to the public and fight against each other during a short tournament and Kupala will close with a spectacular Fire Theatre.
There are many legends and stories associated with the summer solstice, the most famous is the flower of ferns, which can only be seen on this night.
