St. John’s Fair

St. John’s Fair is a few days of outdoor events maintained in a historical setting. In June, a few days before Feast of St. John the Baptist (in Polish noc świętojańska, noc Kupały) the most authentic medieval town is built on the riverbank just at the foot of Wawel Hill. Craftsmen and artists bring back old Polish customs and traditions and spend several days in canvas tents, just as our ancestors several centuries ago.
