Festival of Roses - Rose Valley, Bulgaria 2016

(June 2016, Rose Valley, Bulgaria)

In Bulgaria the rose symbolizes the youth, beauty and wellness. There are thousands of different rose-kinds world-wide, but only 3-4 from them are used for rose-oil producing. Of these, the Kazanluk rose, which has been grown in the Valley of the Roses for over three hundred years is the best. This traditional festival celebrates the rose harvest in Kazanluk, which yields 70% of the world's rose oil - an essential ingredient in perfume production.
In the end of May and beginning of June each year the rose-harvest starts in the Rose Valley (located between the Balkan Range and the Sredna Gora Mounts), which is and the time of the Festival of Roses, usually on the 1st weekend in June. The celebrations begin on Friday night with a parade and dances from various groups across Bulgaria. The festivity continues on Sat., with a competition for the best local dance group and a choral concert, held in Shipka Cathedral in the evening. Usually these events are combined with a new art exhibition at the Archaeological Museum and Art Gallery.
On Sunday the Festival of Roses takes place in the rose fields, with singing, dancing and ritual rose picking done by both children and adults dressed in traditional Bulgarian costumes, after when the celebration heads to the Rose Museum for the ritual crowning of the Rose Queen.
Young women serve bread and rose liquor to the Rose Queen, Rose King and VIPs. Outside across the streets the Kukeries (Koukeri) begin, which is another traditional Bulgarian Festival - masked men with huge bells hanging from their costumes make plenty of noise to scare and banish the bad spirits, as well as to mark the end of the Festival.
