About The Event
As the world is longing for a restart, it is age-old customs of renewal and rebirth we are celebrating next in our recently launched series "Geographies of Tradition,” which takes a comparative look at mirroring Romanian and American traditions. Learn more about one of the most beloved feasts in Romania, the Mărțișor (Little March) – also a powerful symbol of love, purity and new beginnings, included in the UNESCO heritage – along with the ways Americans welcome the coming of spring in the March episode of the program, created in partnership with the National Museum of Romanian Peasant in Bucharest and the Ethnographical Museum of Transylvania in Cluj-Napoca.
