Tonight we walk around the Guča Trumpet festival - also Guca Brass Bands festival or Драгачевски сабор - that was being held for the 59th time on 8.-11. August 2019.
Every year in August the small town Guča in western Serbia is the destination for Balkan trumpet music. Brass bands and thousands of visitors come to Guča for a trumpet competition, enjoying the music and celebrating Balkan culture.
We start the walk at the Guča trumpeter statue and walk on an early evening around the main stage for the larger concerts. We check the local church and stroll past the many food stalls that offer Balkan food specialties. There are some rides which we check out before returning to the statue.
With the 60th anniversary coming up in 2020 the streets will probably more busy then yet this walk gives an impression what to expect at the festival.
