Wrocław Festival 2019

Wroclaw Festival is a cycle of cultural events held in Wroclaw in the second half of June.

Municipal cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations and housing estate councils prepare a rich and unusually diverse cultural offer addressed to a broad audience.

We invite Wroclaw inhabitants and tourists to take part in cultural events in Wroclaw (a huge number of free entrances)

Our aim is to promote social integration (many local events being organised by housing estate councils), to build the identity of Wroclaw inhabitants and to encourage them to participate actively and commonly in the cultural life of the city.
