Rustic Feast. The Crop of Good, on October 9 at Manuc Inn, by PACT Foundation, will revive traditional cultural riches offered by the Romanian southern villages all the while giving you the opportunity to contribute to their preservation and well-being.
Whether you will take delight in traditional dishes, doina rhythms or you will raise a glass of Romanian traditional drink to the harmonious sounds of local musicians, the feast will capture you and you won’t even know when you grabbed the hand of the other participants to join the hora. When you come, you will be welcomed by a living exhibition of arts and crafts displayed by the people from our communities, small workshops for old ways of weaving clothes or wicker baskets, making brooms, manually processing wood or modeling clay, handmade folk dolls and many other items inspired by traditional customs and talented people ready to guide you on a journey to discover them.
Because this evening is more than a feast, it is a harvest of good deeds, during the event you will have the opportunity to support all these traditional treasures of the village and the people living in harmony with them by participating in an auction and a tombola of special gifts and activities offered by our partners and people from Foundation PACT communities.

Our vision is that a large number of people living in rural and small urban areas should be active locally, to find solutions to the problems of their communities, to directly contribute to their own economic and social development, and to that of the community they belong to. www.fundatiapact.ro
