Dumbravita?s Days


Dumbravita commune is a Romanian settlement dating back to half millennium ago. The inhabitants go in for farming and breeding; they are hospitable and industrious people. The locality offers the tourists an authentic natural environment, lakes for sporting fishing, traditions and gastronomy specific to the area.

The first Edition

Within August 18th-20th, at Dumbravita took place ?Dumbravita?s days?, a series of cultural, artistic and sporting manifestations. The event was organized by the County Council Brasov, the County Centre for Conservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture Brasov, the city hall Dumbravita and the local council. According to mayor Zachiu Popa, there was the first edition of the event; next year, the authorities will organize a jubilee one to celebrate 500 years since the first attestation of the locality in documents.

Procession and popular Parade

The main attraction was the folkloric show, including a popular parade, outdoor popular party and a splendid dance and song performance. Among the artists various folkloric bands from Dumbravita, Halchiu, Codlea, Kishinev (Moldavia Republic), the brass band ?Tara Barsei? and well-known performers of popular music.
The procession started in front of the city hall and crossed the village in a wonderful display of ornate horses and carriages. The mayor himself, born in Dumbravita, put on the traditional clothes and the official three coloured scarf.

Party till Midnight

In observance of the tradition, the procession halted at a crossroads, where elders and youngsters wearing popular clothes danced the traditional round dance, inviting everybody watching to join them. The brass band played old songs, an irresistible invitation to have a good time. The procession continued till the local stadium, where an outdoor stage had been setup. The party continued till midnight.

Invitation in Dumbavita

The youngsters had their own party too; the organizers offered them a concert, modern dances and a huge camp fire. A football tour and the field-events made their day.
Closing the first edition of ?Dumbravita?s Days?, the mayor Popa invited all those willing to discover the traditions and the habits of the area or to taste the local gastronomy to visit Dumbravita, no matter the season.
