Each year an International Folklore Festival takes place in Romans. Groups from all over the world are invited to take part - showing their traditions and cultures in the form of dance and music. There are a number of grand processions with music and traditional dancing which can range from Africa to China - Australian Aboriginals to French stilt dancers - often involving more than two dozen countries - and all age groups. It is a very spectacular week, culminating in a combined performance on stage in the grounds of the old convent which now houses the shoe museum. The festival usually takes place during the second week in July. Contact us if you are interested.
