On August 14 and 15, the town of Kalofer, located at the southern foot of the Balkan Mountains, hosts the traditional Lace Festival. The program of the local community center includes a series of demonstrations, video lessons, concerts and exhibitions. 

The residents and guests of Kalofer can also enjoy a rich cultural and music program. They can also visit a shuttle lace bazaar, as shuttle lace is among the cultural and historical emblems of the small Bulgarian town. A website created under the project “Future for the Kalofer Shuttle Lace Creative Center” shows the rich archives collected by members of the local community center who have been working on a luxurious catalogue containing 50 emblematic types of traditional lace.
