On November 2 to 4, Tverskaya and Manezhnaya Squares of Moscow will become pedestrian zones with lots of entertainment, fairs and performances. Visitors of the National Unity Day festival will get acquainted with the creativity and cuisines of different nationalities of Russia and make souvenirs as a keepsake.
Last year, the festival “National Unity Day” in Moscow brought together almost two million people. Kids and adults alike attended master classes (there were 609) and immersive performances (150 of those), and tasted a variety of national dishes (according to estimates, there were 11 thousand servings).


This year you will find an even more grandiose scope. So get ready to stock up on impressions! You will have three whole days for this. In the new season, National Unity Day is bringing together handcrafters, artists and performers from different parts of this enormous country.
The festival program includes acquaintance with the traditions, rituals and customs of the peoples of Russia, engaging workshops, and impressive immersive performances that make every spectator feel like one of their characters.
Festival Treats

You will not only taste traditional dishes of various nationalities of Russia, but you will also have a chance to cook them.

These recipes might well become a new feature of your home feast. At cooking master classes, visitors will get acquainted with the main hits of Russian cuisine in different parts of the country, taste them and learn to cook.
For three days in eight culinary schools (they will be located at all city festival venues, except Manezhnaya Square), more than 50 master classes will be held to cook the most delicious dishes.

Every day in Manezhnaya Square, an immersive show will take children and adults on a long trip across Russia, with theater actors and folklore performers accompanying them. That unusual walk will be full of national songs, dances, and games popular in each region of Russia.

An Architectural Studio will open in Revolution Square, where children will learn about urban planning and get acquainted with the sights of large Russian cities, make their own art objects in the form of buildings that will decorate the exhibition stand.
