XXIV INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF THE MASQUERADE GAMES SURVA PERNIK 2015

Surva 2015 will be held on January 30, 31 and February 1.

The International Festival of the Masked games takes place the last weekend of January. Its most attractive feature is its two-day parade for masquerade companies from Bulgaria and abroad. 

On average, around 6, 000 people or about 100 groups from every folklore region of Bulgaria, as well as companies from Europe, Asia, and Africa take part in the contest. The contestants come here to win, to experience the atmosphere, to have fun and, of course, to get the recognition that they have been a part of it all. The citizens of Pernik and visitors from other parts of Bulgaria and abroad come to watch the show so they can be part of the magic. They want to see the masks in person, they want to touch them for good luck and good health and feel rejuvenated and energized when they leave. 

Тhe official opening is on 30 January at 18:00 with a unique light show and fireworks over the Palace of Culture. On 31 January and 1 February the parade for masquerade companies will take place.
