The Turkish Festival will take place May 20th to May 22nd in Titan park, in the third district of Bucharest. The festival is meant as a celebration of Turkish culture, in many of its aspects, from cuisine and crafts to traditional dances and the arts.

A culinary exhibition comprising over 45 food stalls will showcase a diverse range of foods, alongside Turkish teas and coffee. At the arts workshops visitors are invited to learn from Turkish artists crafts such as calligraphy, the miniature, the gold-covering technique (tezhip) and the ebru, the Turkish art which entails painting on water followed by giving paper a marble-like aspect.

Children will find here dedicated activities such as face painting, balloon figurines, and children’s shows and concerts
