About the festival

Brno has a rich multicultural history and despite the ethnic “clear out“ after the WWII now you can meet plenty of foreign students or tourists here and again also expats who chose Brno for their new home. This is proven by Babylonfest, a festival which introduces culture and traditions of national and ethnic minorities living here.

Babylonfest introduces Brno neighbours coming from the entire world to the Czech majority. It also represents a unique opportunity for the minorities to meet, present their customs and traditions and allows them to integrate better in the community. Locals, on the other hand, benefit from broadening their horizons and being enriched by other cultures without having to leave the country. Therefore, the event is not mere fun, which it overlaps considerably in a social and humane way. We already cannot wait for the next year.

We look forward to seeing you at the 12th year of the festival.
