The eleventh edition of the International Folklore Festival in Marmaris took place between August 27 and 31, 2019. This year's event was a host to 350 performers from Bulgaria, Argentina, Northern Cyprus, Uzbekistan and local bands from Turkey. The festival allowed dancers to meet new cultures, participate in two concert programs and two formal meetings, explore the sights of the Turkish resort, attend a workshop and have fun at a DJ party and a specially organized master class.

The performances in the program of the Gala Concert were watched by 10,000 spectators. The forum director –  Mr. Selçuk Yıldız handed certificates to all participants and plaques to the group leaders. Each of the groups left Marmaris with great memories and the hope of returning to the next edition of the musical feast, which will take place from May 15 to 20, 2020.

The organizers say they have fulfilled the main goal of the festival - "Dancing for Peace".
