11th Salt Festival

A display of 17th century salt works, “Salty Heptathlon” and workshops are the attractions of this year’s “Salt Festival” 

You are heartily welcome to the Festival which will take place on June 9, 2013 between 9.30 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. We will play with salt, become acquainted with its history and present-day uses. At the courtyard of the Saltworks Castle, the following workshops will operate: potter’s, cooper’s, rope maker’s and smith’s – important for procurement of salt and, exceptionally this year, a wickerwork workshop. There will also be salt producers.

We would like to invite entire families; for adults, we propose visit at an exhibitions in castle, a trip along the route of former shafts and cinema shows. Children will have a lot of attractions to choose from: “a rope ride” from the castle donjon, playing with salt dough, competitions, as well as paper and art workshops. On the other hand, teenagers can compete in the first outdoor game devoted to salt: “Salty Heptathlon.”

The event will be accompanied by lively concerts of such bands as Pancakes, Coffee Break, and Quartet Klezmer Trio. There will also be traditional Polish cuisine dishes. You are heartily welcome to celebrate with us and deepen your knowledge about the gold of the Middle Ages.
