"Once I close my eyes – you stand in front of me. Once I open my eyes – you float under my eyelashes" — it could be love confessions to the ancient, proud, hospitable, free Georgia. This country is known for its legendary hospitality, rugged beauty of mountain temples, unique dancing culture and unforgettable polyphony.
You can endlessly talk about beauties of Georgia, but you will never get to know this country in one trip, you may just get acquainted with Georgia. But this acquaintance will leave an indelibly-beautiful mark in your heart and all these memories about Georgia will beckon you to come back. That is why Fiestalonia with the support of the Mayor of Tbilisi is organizing an unforgettable festival-contest: Fiestalonia Georgia!
The main purpose of the festivals and contests that we organize is to provide a fair competition among creative groups and individual performers from all over the world along with the demonstration of art to the audience and also experience exchange among the group heads.
