ARTE Feastival 2023 is not Taking Place
all purchased tickets will be refunded – see “Important Information

Fest Team, Cultural-Mass Activities, and our hosts from ARTE hotel have taken the hard decision to  cancel the family ARTE Feastival in 2023.

The third edition of our beloved festival won’t take place in 2023, and all promo tickets purchased are to be refunded – make sure you check out the section  Important Information

The family holiday with a colorful program, a diverse selection of music and attractions for every taste and age transformed Velingrad for three days from the spa capital of the Balkans into the festival capital of Bulgaria. Unfortunately, despite numerous public discussions in the last two years and the support of the municipality of Velingrad and the hosts from the ARTE Hotel, the organizers do not find the necessary local and communal support for its holding. Although local business has direct economic and image benefits to support the long-term occurrence of such events on their territory.

Thee sharply increased prices of hotel and other tourist services on the territory of Velingrad during the period of the festival does not help to hold it, on the contrary – it makes it economically difficult for the audience of the festival.

We remind you that in 2021 the family ARTE Feastival won the award for “Best Event in Tourism” at the annual awards of the Bulgarian Hotel and Restaurant Association with its debut and managed to retain its title last year.
The Fest Team and Culture-Mass Activity thank the municipality of Velingrad and ARTE Hotel for the successful cooperation and will soon announce the new destination of the family festival. Organizers prefer to give fans who bought tickets for this year’s edition the opportunity to return them while it is being finalized.
