12th September 2021
WonderPUCK Street Festival, a cultural event aimed for the entire family, with focus on children and teenagers, gets ready for its 5th edition in September 2021!
The festival is an open-air cultural event, which gathers artistic domains such as theatre, dance, visual arts and handcrafts. It started in 2017 and it was the only festival dedicated to children and family in Transylvania. As time passed by, the festival grew and it became both a tourist attraction in Cluj-Napoca, gathering more than 20.000 people and an artistry hub.
For this edition, we are extending our performance venues, from three main show areas to six locations. The fifth edition will include museum courtyards as performance venues.
Throughout the universal language of the artistic activities, the audience is invited to participate to these three days full of exceptional cultural experiences.
The access is free!
