Cultural events

Even though the evolution trends of the current society are also felt at the level of Tășnad city, the appreciation of traditions, customs, moral and spiritual values have not been affected to a great extent. There was and still is a continuity and attractiveness for cultural – artistic activities. An enlightening argument in this regard is the involvement of the authorities and dedicated locals in organizing cultural-artistic events that take place throughout all year long.

“Dragu-mi-i cântu şi jocu” Intercounty Folklore Festival

The “Dragu-mi-i cântu şi jocu” Intercounty Folklore Festival took place this year, as it happens every year, in the Unirea festival hall and was organised by the Townhall of Tășnad, the Cultural Centre of Tășnad, the Satu Mare County Council and the Regional Centre fot the Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture from Satu Mare. The event was sponsored by the Local Council from Tășnad.

The festival begins with the parade of the members dressed in traditional costumes through the centre of the town, to the great delight of the viewers.

This event is meant to bring back the children's interest for folklore, for the traditions and customes of our people, for the dances, songs and beautiful folk costumes from our grandmother's bottom drawers.

“Custom and Great Joy”. Gathering – a folklore night

The event that takes place annually wants to offer the youth, the tourists and the entire community a good way of spending their free time and to become at the same time the promoters of the local culture.

The organization of an authentic traditional folklore night is the perfect way to preserve and promote the cultural traditional lore, it also offers the youth the possibility and the opportunity to introduce themselves and to better perceive the traditional values, and also to revive the old customes. Such activities that promote the cultural treasure are good methods for the preservation and transmission of genuine cultural values of our people, especially from the Tășnad region, to the next generation.

Location: Thermal swimming pool.
