Once again I ask, does anyone know any more about this Festival?
I heard about it early this year, and followed up by faxing an
organiser in the Czech Republic. He has replied today thus:
1.09 The International Folk Festival WORLD FEST in the
SILVER DOLLAR CITY area in Branson, Missouri, USA, with an
extremely rich international participation (folk music,
dances, songs, traditional crafts) takes place yearly. In
the next year it will be organized in April, 7 through
May, 9, B499, i. e. for five weeks. All Mondays and
Tuesdays are closing days. The goal of this Festival is to
introduce to the visitors (more than 16 000 people come
daily to the SDC area) how the people in different
countries of the world lived and worked more than 100 years
ago. That’s why only traditional arts and crafts are
Since 1992, different Folklore or Music Groups as well as
craftspeople from the Czech Republic and from other
European countries as well were involved every year very
successfully into this Festival, delgated thereto through
my P.R.AGENCY - Arts & Crafts. I was there personally three
times already - it is a fantastic experience ! Since 1990,
I work close together with my excellent friend Mr. Rex
Burdette, the SDC Special Events Director, as his special
representative for Europe - and now hopefully even for New
Zealand, too !
I’m trying to ascertain what sort of event this Festival is. How
is it regarded by any of you who may have participated before?
Can anyone comment, Please?
