Open air Live event - Language fair

 Fair, 17 Sep 2022, Sofia, Bulgaria

​For the first time since the pandemic the European Commission organizes (together with partners from EUNIC Bulgaria) a live event dedicated to EDL. The event is in the open air, in Slaveykov square in Sofia (https://goo.gl/maps/Jz9JVJ82sMnQk6cH9). The fair will consist of stands of many foreign cultural institutes with information leaflets, books, games, quizes in their particular language, etc. Songs in most of the 41 languages of EDL will be played and sung live, there will be animation for children (drawing contest) and funny games of tongue twisters. Small prizes await the brave who try out their linguistic knowledge. This year the event is held earlier on the 17th of September - the day of Sofia and underlines the cultural and linguistic mix of the capital. Come and celebrate the diversity of Europe with us!
