The fair at the Peasant Museum will focus on handmade objects, with invited participants being students, artists, designers, architects and craftsmen using rural world and symbols to develop new forms of urban creativity. At the same time, various schools, foundations and NGOs working to support children with disabilities and underprivileged categories are invited to the fair each year.

Besides various hand-crafted objects, the fair is also an opportunity to sample a series of food products that are closer to the natural cooking concept such as ginger bread, home-made cookies, cozonac (a sweet-bread type of cake with cacao and nuts), pastry products, honey and teas.

The fair is open between 10:00 and 18:00 in the interior yard of the museum, the Acvariu hall and at the entrance hall. Tickets cost RON 4 full price and RON 2 discounted price for pupils, students and pensioners.
