Bodrog fest in Bački Monoštor
Bodrog Fest got its name after a medieval town Bodrog on whose grounds Bački Monoštor is situated. The story of the town is a mystery, because there is no physical evidence of its existence, except for the written ones. It is assumed that the town disappeared in the Danube waves, because it was situated right on its banks. The importance of the festival is in preservation of local tradition and culture as well as natural values of the village. The visitors to the festival can taste traditional gastronomic products (fish stew, meat stew (perkelt), fried fish, game stew, poppies and walnut pie, etc).
The festival programme starts with the Parade of horse riders and merry horse-drawn buggies (fiacre), continues with performances by folklore groups from the village and surrounding places, poem recitals and musicians on the festival stage in the village centre. Performances by tamburitza players will be held in the evening on the central festival stage. The concerts of Bodrog by night band will be held on the stage in the David Reeder Park. Here one can find artisan products of old handicrafts on numerous stands.
