“Christmas Chime” festival in Zvanivska AH gathered about one thousand guests

The “Christmas Chime” cribs festival was held this weekend in the Zvanivska rural AH. For the third year in a row, the AH has hosted guests from different corners of the Donetsk and Lviv Oblast, this time the creative teams from the Kharkiv Oblast joined them as well.

The folk band “Dzherelo Roztochchia” came from the Zhovkvka Rayon of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast with the new carols – they have been frequent guests in the Donetsk Oblast since the beginning of the military actions in the East of Ukraine.

“The festival of this kind is held for the second time in Zvanivka, famous for its historical roots, for a reason: Lemkos and Boykos, whose families were relocated to the Donetsk Oblast in the middle of the last century, live on the territory of the Zvanivska AH,” commented Maksym Tkach, decentralisation adviser of the Donetsk Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme. “The “Christmas Chime” festival has already become a symbol of the Zvanivska hromada, a factor that unites and forms a common identity among the AH inhabitants. Due to such celebrations, the hromada will be known outside the region, and this may be an impetus for tourism development.”
