The International Folk – Dance Festival “Spring Tale – Vienna” will be held for the 10th time in Vienna, Austria during the period from 28th March till 30th March 2020.
Vienna, city of culture, city of music, city of art, romantically imperial city!
Vienna is referred to by many as a unique onion, with each of the urban layers surrounding the oldest historic center being equally important to the overall flavor of the city. The Austrian capital therefore embraces all the traditions of a European city, from Roman foundations through to Gothic, Baroque and Historicism. Tourists are eager to visit Vienna because of the city’s exciting combination of the royal-imperial flair of the past with the latest trends, the responsible cultivation of a precious heritage and charming traditions. But much more than old buildings turn Vienna into a city of beauty: one also finds excellent museums, fine art collections and world-renowned works of art in the city.
The International Folk Dance Festival “Spring Tale” is a non-competitive festival of traditional and modern dances. On the festival may participate children and youth folklore dance groups, modern dance groups, instrumental groups, choirs, as well as groups and performers from other art styles. The age of participants is not limited.
During these 3 days of the festival, the groups will have one performance in closed Concert Hall. Groups will perform 8-10 min either with live music or USB. The performances will be in the evening hours so you can plan the day ahead and use it for visiting the city attractions or the largest Shopping center. Every Group will be rewarded with a Certificate for taking part on the Festival.
During the free time, on group request the Festival Team can organize several excursions:
– Danube Tower
– Sightseeing tour of Vienna
– Palace of Habsburg Dynasty Schonbrunn
