Regional Sabantuy Festival of the Plough

June/July 2021
Festival Troitsk

Sabantuy is an ancient Turkic festival celebrating the end of sowing. It is a great opportunity to visit ethnic farmsteads and learn about the everyday life of Tatars, Bashkirs and Kazakhs in the old times, experience delicious ethnic meals such as chak-chak, belyashi, beshbarmak, and purchase local meat and delicacies to taste them at home.

Everyone can take part in folk games and comic battles, like trying to balance while walking along a log. Competitions are organised both for men and women, including contests for preparing the best bowl of noodles, the selection of the best hand-spinner and the one with the longest braid.
