Dear participants in the Children's Folklore Dance Festival,

Welcome to the town of Sliven!

The Twentieth Jubilee International Children's Folklore Dance Festival "Friendship without Borders" is held in our town on the 24th May - the Day of the Bulgarian education and culture and of the Slavic alphabet.

Children from 10 foreign countries and children from 10 folklore groups from Sliven will meet each other here. Talented dancers will gather on one stage to show their love to dance, folklore and traditions of their native land.

The festival days will turn into a combination of different cultures, into a triumph of the art, into the most sincere children friendship because all of you together will feel the magic of the folklore dances and songs.

I believe that every one of you will leave a part of their art in Sliven and will take a part of the culture of our people to your countries. This way the festival will gain its purpose - to create friendship without borders.

Stephan Radev
Mayor of Municipality of Sliven
