The proto-Bulgarian survival school Baga-Tur will stage three shows, and the travelling cultural community centre Homestead will organize lectures about the history of Bulgaria, contests and an educational competition for children.

The big forum, which combines the economic aspect of sheep breeding with tradition and folklore, will be attended by representatives of sheep breeding organizations from 17 countries of Europe and Asia.
