Potato Festival - Miercurea Ciuc
In 2001, when this event was organized for the first time, it seemed to be a simple gastronomic contest in which only potato stew boiled in most of the competing teams’ pots. Over the years, however, this event has evolved into a true scene for all sorts of potato delicacies, but also an opportunity for community interaction.
The participants take their role very seriously, turning every year a banal potato dish into a sophisticated and varied menu with different flavors, bringing the jury and the tasting audience to work.
The festival is organized annually in the Central Park in Miercurea Ciuc and gathers potato lovers from all over the country and abroad. In addition to potato delights, the festival has a dedicated program for young people, creative and craft workshops, popular dances and other beloved community activities.
