Bazhovsky National Folk Festival is an annual festival of culture, art and craft, organized in 1993. The festival is named after famous Ural writer Pavel Bazhov, collector of national folk stories and author of plenty of tales about the Urals.

Since 1996 regional authorities have become cofounder of the festival. The festival turned into parade of folk amateur collectives. That time a decision was made to hold it annually in the end of June on the shore of Bolshoi Sunkul Lake in the Chelyabinsk region. Since 1999 “Bazhovka” has gained the status of all-Russian festival: collectives and craftsmen from all country take part in it.   

Here all genres of folk art are presented: changing each other within 2-3 days on the stage amateur artists, poets and composers, singers, dancers and musicians perform. Everyday objects and articles of arts and crafts are being demonstrated. Craftsmen of smithcraft, carving and elaboration, casting, weaving and many other handicrafts are constant participants of “Bazhovka”.
