The concept for the Festival of Folklore in Koprivshtitsa, where thousands of Bulgarians and the diaspora meet to perform living heritage practices, originated when local musicians saw that traditions were being endangered by factors such as urbanization and commodification. Involving the municipality, Ministry of Culture, Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Studies with the Ethnographic Museum, the Institute for Art Studies and Bulgarian television and radio, it promotes the performance, transmission and documentation of community traditions attracting national and international audiences.
