The „Haferland Week“ not only wants to attract Transylvanian Saxons to come to their homeland every year but also the tourists who wish to discover the region and hear the story of a community which left an unforgettable mark on this land. It is one of the largest festivals dedicated to the cultural heritage of the Transylvanian Saxons.
The first seven editions of the Haferland Week accounted for more than 25.000 visitors and numerous public figures from the cultural and social environments in Romania and Germany.
Year on year, the Haferland Week has offered its visitors a more diverse programme: religious services in the fortified churches, film displays, the traditional ball of the Transylvanian Saxons and photography exhibitions are only a few examples.
The eighth edition of the festival takes place between 31st of July and 2nd of August 2020 in the villages of Archita, Viscri, Homorod, Saschiz, Rupea, Criț, Bunești, Roadeș, Meșendorf and Cloașterf.
