The Vienna International Folk Dance Festival’s aim is to exchange cultural traditions by gathering people of different nationalities together. We provide an opportunity for global group members to develop a tolerant attitude to cultural differences and respect for ethnic peculiarities with their unique forms of self-expression and artistic realization through dance and music.

The idea of this festival is to empower peace, friendship and peoples' fellowship, as well as to establish and strengthen international contacts with the near- and far-abroad countries, resume cultural exchange and create conditions for the participant’s close communication.
