Several years ago, an Interregional Folklore Festival "The Village - the Soul of Russia" received the status of Russian festival.

Vologda Region Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov proposed to give the event the status of the Russian festival in August 2019. The Governor's decree of January 16, 2020 gave the festival "The Village - the Soul of Russia" the status of an all-Russian event.

The folklore festival “The Village - the Soul of Russia” unites the best amateur groups, artisans, researchers in the field of traditional folk culture. The creative project is aimed at preserving cultural identity, creating conditions for the development of traditional folk culture and promoting the cultural and historical heritage of the Vologda Region and various regions of Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin declared 2022 the year of folk art and the intangible cultural heritage of the peoples of the Russian Federation.

Residents of Vologda’s villages are connoisseurs of folk culture. Here you can still hear old songs, get acquainted with original craftsmen who know the secrets of folk crafts - weaving, wood carving, lace weaving and birch bark weaving.
