Some changes have been made to the program of events of the Traditional Bukhara International Festival ‘Silk and Spices.’ 

The press office of the regional administration informed, during the last several meetings to discuss the preparation for the festival, the head of Bukhara region Uktam Barnoyev instructed to revise cardinally the approaches to the organization of the festival and start to take it to a higher level.

According to the head of the region, the upcoming event is a great opportunity to present the entire tourist, economic and industrial potential of the region. In this regard, he instructed to attract to the festival the manufacturers of textile products and representatives of services industry along with artists and cultural figures.

As for the cultural program of the festival, it can be supplemented with the performance of the National Symphonic Orchestra of Uzbekistan. Currently, this proposal is being discussed with the Ministry of Culture. It should become a particular, vivid performance that would attract the interest of bоth tourists and local residents.

“Costume parade will be held along the usual route - from the Ark Citadel to the Labi-Hovuz Square. From ancient times Bukhara was the place of crossing of the West and the East. We want to make our focus on this and plan to show it in interesting details,” Bоtir Norboyev, head of the regional administration secretariat, said. “The script is related to the creativity of Alisher Navoi and other historical characters. It will be a historical-philosophical interpretation of the creation of the works of the great Uzbek poet.”

This time, a separate, broader and larger program will be prepared for fashion contest and fashion show. It is, as always, expected the participation of the representatives of the fashion industry of Uzbekistan and other countries.

We expect that the 16th Silk and Spices Traditional Festival, May 26 - 28, will cause in its participants a lot of positive emotions and will be an important event in the cultural life of not only Bukhara, but the entire country.
