The event, which will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2023, between 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., in the park in front of the Evangelical Church – the central area of ​​the village, is aimed at residents of the community, as well as tourists and residents of neighboring counties, willing to spend a Saturday in a warm, festive atmosphere.

The program is a full one: 11 performers of popular music from the area will maintain the atmosphere, alongside them, there will also be the Târnava-Vânători Dance Ensemble. Raffle with traditional products is another expected element of the event. Those present will be able to win baskets with traditional goodies. The smallest participants in the event will be invited to a wood carving workshop with a member of the local community, and a group of children from the village will prepare a modern dance, under the guidance of a dans teacher from Sighisoara.

Local products, preserves, syrups, jams, honey and jam, autumn vegetables and fruits, as well as truffle dishes, famous in Archita, will be available for those who appreciate the traditional tastes of the area. Entrance to the event is free.
