MURMANSK (Sputnik) — Visitors will be able to try Arctic meals, enjoy Nordic landscapes, listen to the music and just relax.
Today the village has less than 1,000 people. The festival's organizers decided to prove that life could be interesting even in small provincial communities. The goal of the festival is to find ways to revive the village and show how activists can transform undervalued Russian provinces through a concerted effort. Last year the first festival was attended by hundreds of people.
The festival is being staged by the creators of the "Big Land" project with support from the Murmansk Region Government and a number of farm cooperatives.
"We expect over a thousand people from all parts of Russia and abroad to visit Teriberka," a representative of the Murmansk Government said.
Guests will have an opportunity to try Arctic food, listen to music by guest bands, see street theater performances and discuss urgent provincial territory issues. The festival will also include sports, entertainment, environmental and children's programs.
