This large-scale and unique in its kind event is dedicated to ethnic wedding traditions of the peoples of the world, which will be attended by representatives of various ethnic communities from all over Ukraine.
For three consecutive years, the initiative group under the direction of Olga Sobko conducts the “DREVO FEST” international wedding ethnofestival, partner of which is the Good Deeds International Charity Foundation.
The festival was initiated as a cultural and social project, whose main objective is revival of forgotten folk traditions and customs, ethnic features and spiritual culture of different nations, familiarizing the younger generation to the traditional culture. Nowadays, the organizers once again want to remind people about the main human values – family, love and friendship!
This year’s festival will be held outdoors in blooming gardens of the National Complex “Ekspotcentr Ukraine”, Kiev.
The program of the festival includes:
– Trade Fair of Folk Artists
– Exhibition of wedding folk costumes and wedding stuff
– Ritual scene with presentation of wedding ceremonies of different nations
– National locations

The feature of this year’s festival will be an all-prize charity lottery by the Good Deeds ICF, which also represent its activities on the event. Money received from the sale of lottery tickets will be given to victims of non-peaceful events on the east of the country. At the festivals the Foundation also organizes a lounge area, where everyone will be able to relax from the rich program of “DREVO FEST”.
