About

We invite you to the 11th edition of the Haferland Week festival, the largest event in Romania dedicated to promoting the culture and traditions of the Transylvanian Saxon community, which will take place from 3 to 6 August in ten locations in the region historically known as Haferland (Oat Country): Archita, Saschiz, Homorod, Rupea, Criț, Roadeș, Meșendorf, Cloașterf, Bunești and Viscri. The theme of this year's edition is "Sustainability in the cultural landscape of Haferland".

The 2023 edition promises a spectacular programme of activities, such as traditional Saxon balls, concerts of Saxon music, lectures, folk dance performances, film screenings, photo and traditional Saxon costume exhibitions, organ concerts, parade of multicultural folk costumes, workshops for children and adults (wood painting, wreath weaving, wood carving, weaving and embroidery, etc.). ), guided theme walks, visits to local farms and traditional courtyards, organic food tasting and much more.
Also as part of this year's programme, visitors will be able to attend the re-confirmation of the C.A. Evangelical Church in Rupea, a recently restored architectural ensemble that includes a fortified enclosure wall, characteristic of Saxon churches in Transylvania. The church, founded in the early 14th century, is one of the oldest and most impressive monuments of worship of the Evangelical Saxon community in Romania.

About Haferland Week
The Haferland Week Festival was initiated in 2013 by the M&V Schmidt Foundation, together with the Tabaluga Foundation // Peter Maffay Stiftung, an organization founded by the Romanian-born German musician Peter Maffay. The general objective of the event is to promote the culture and traditions of the Transylvanian Saxons and to develop tourism in the Haferland region.

Cultural project financed by the Brasov County Council, co-financed by the Ministry Of Culture, whom we thank, as the main partners of the Haferland Week cultural festival.
