The traditional 26th Dance Festival in Slatina gathered a large number of performers and cultural-artistic societies showcasing their traditions.
Rakita, considering our goal to preserve the identity, language and culture of local peoples, was happy to accept the call and support this multi-day event, which is one of the oldest events in the territory of Bor.
Slatina hosted the villages of Ražanj, Petrovac na Mlavi and Kučevo, as well as a folklore ensemble from Romania and the Cultural- Artistic Association Šarbanovac, who were the winners of the village meeting of 2018. The cultural-artistic society from Bor performed during the revue, and a football tournament was also organized.
The Deputy Mayor of Bor, Branko Perić, said that the Festival met all expectations, such as getting together while preserving the wealth of the language, culture, traditions, and expanded cooperation.
The host of the festival was KUD “Branko Olar”, and the president of this association, Žika Šutulović, recalled that the folklore section of this KUD was founded in the late 1960’s and the importance of this event lies in gathering youth and children.
The Dance Festival in Slatina, representing a non-material cultural asset, attracted about 200 participants, and prizes were handed out to the best.
The sponsor of the event was the City of Bor, and Rakita was one of the donors.
