Although winter is still in its peak, we can start to plan the spring season. Especially that top Wroclaw’s events are about to take place. And some of them really deserve to be included in your diary for 2015. Wroclaw has amazing annual events. And we start planning the long weekend in May in the winter.
With music, food, and even beer - this is how we roll in the spring in Wroclaw. The winter malaise finishes in March, so make sure to remember about the obligatory elements on Wroclaw’s cultural map.
We start with great food. Soon, on 25 March, on Szewska Street the recurring Easter ecological market sets off. This is the place where, traditionally, you can find all type for goodies from organic farms, cold meats you won't find in any store, and original Polish bread. You can plan to take your first spring walks along the aromatic stands, and Easter may become a good excuse to do the shopping. Spring in Wroclaw starts with EkoJarmark each year, and each year it offers amazing food and colorful products of craftsman and artists. Can’t wait to that!
Jazz nad Odrą [Jazz by Odra]
Now it’s time for high culture. All jazz funs know that the best jazz concerts have been happening by Odra River for 51 years. And this year, the most famous festival of this type of music in Poland will be led by Leszek Możdżer - true legend. Moreover, Dave Liebman is one of the stars of the next Jazz nad Odrą. You can see him in Impart on 16 April. And the tickets've been available since the middle of February. This international music event in Wroclaw may be a great opportunity to try something new - in fine, it is the genuine refection of culture and history of music.
The festival organized for years by Wroclaw’s club Firlej is by far the most popular and most extravagant event. In May, the capital of Lower Silesia will host true music avant-garde: the post-rock Russian Circle and the ambient Fennesz, and it’s just the beginning. You’ll have a chance to experience the crème de la crème of the new sounds. Asymmetry Festival gathers every year the amateurs of unusual post rock-hard core-punk music. And attracts people thirsty for new music experiences. Concerts take place 1-3 May in Wroclaw Firlej club.
Guitar Guinness World Record
At the same time, you can become a part of yet another of Wroclaw’s traditions: the holiday of all guitar players on 1 May. This year, the event will have been organized for the 13th time and it seems to us that its popularity increases significantly. The Gipsy King Family Reunited, or the amazing family of musicians, will be the special guests of the Guitar Guinness World Record. It may be an interesting celebration to participate in, so its’s worth in stay in Wroclaw for the long weekend in May. In 2014, on Thanks Jimi Festival, “Hey Joe” was played by 7344 guitars at the same time.
Wroclaw Good Beer Festival
Having gathered such an amount of musical experiences, it’s time to relax with good beer in a mug. And there is no better opportunity for that than the one and only festival of this golden beverage in Wroclaw. It also takes place during our May holiday - from 1st to 3rd. A few dozens of breweries from Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany, England and other countries will demonstrate their achievements on this year’s Good Beer Festival. There will be also plenty of traditional food, which always tastes better with ice-cold beer.
But these are only some selected events Wroclaw can’t live without. So maybe you have already decided on your plans or concerts you want to see in our city?
