With pleasure we INVITE you (Folk and Choral groups, orchestras, majoretteteams), (children, youth and adults groups) to participate on I“InternationalKUSADASI Folk Dance and Music festival” 22 – 26 September2022 Kusadasi, Turkey.
This festival is the perfect occasion for different groups from various countries to gather together so that they could express their culture and nation through dances, music and interesting national costumes.
Kusadasi, which means “bird island” in Turkish, is set in a superb gulf in the Aegean region of Turkey and is known for its turquoise sparkling water of the Aegean Sea, broad sandy beaches, bright sun and large marina with a capacity for 600 boats. A glorious ancient city stands beside it, Ephesus with millions of visitors from tours each year. The town is only 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Adnan Menderes Airport in Izmir. Numerous holiday villages and hotels line its shores and hundreds of restaurants serves food from all around the world and, of course, Turkish Cuisine, which is one of the largest cuisines of the world. There are also many hostels, discos, bars, cafeterias, pubs and “Turkish Nights”; all those to cater holiday-makers.
Kusadasi has retained a certain earthiness to it and inexpensive meals and pensions can still be found in town. Many shops do a brisk trade with passengers from hundreds of cruise ships that dock for a day or two, allowing enough time for a trip to Ephesus and a shopping expedition.
The tiny GüvercinAdasi (Pigeon Island) is connected to the mainland in the town center with a causeway. Its romantic setting includes a well-maintained flower garden which surrounds the restored 14th-15th century fortress housing a cafeteria.
Beaches close to town tend to get quite crowded during summer. If you prefer more serenity, head for Dilek Peninsula National Park, about 28 kilometers (17 miles) from Kusadasi. It is also possible to get to Greek island Samos by regular daily ferries.
Ephesus is Turkey’s most significant cultural heritage with over 1.5 million visitors from all over the world every year. This city is where St Paul worked on spreading the word of God, the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Roman Emperor Marcus Antonius visited and Virgin Mary and St John spent their final days.
In an area of just ten kilometresquares, one of the world’s seven ancient wonders, Artemis Temple, the holy pilgrimage spot of Christians; House of Virgin Mary, the most glorious ancient city in Anatolia; Ephesus, the tomb and church of Jesus’ apostle St John, the seven sleepers’ cave, and one of the most beautiful Turkish Seljuk architecure examples, Isa Bey Mosque stand, turning this region into a treasure chest of world heritage sites.
All this beauties in Kusadası city and lot of fun is waiting for you on our festival. Come and join the best festival experience ever. Travel and dance with us in Istanbul, Turkey…
