National Folk Festival
24 Jun to 1 Jul
The National Folk Festival is the symbol of Albanian folk culture. The festival is held at Gjirokastra Castle. This international event was originally created in 1968 to celebrate Enver Hoxha's birthday in his hometown. Today, it is one of the country’s most important events. The concerts performed by iso-polyphonic groups, a tradition classified as intangible heritage by UNESCO, are a major highlight.
