Five-Petalled Rose Festival

Five-Petalled Rose Festival

Third week in June
The Festival of the Five-Petalled Rose takes place in Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. The town prospered during the Renaissance, and today's festival permits residents and visitors to relive some of the town's past glories. Cesky Krumlov's magnificent castle adds to the festival's atmosphere, and some of the events take place there. Festival highlights include swordplay demonstrations, plays and street dramas, processions of people in Renaissance costume, a medieval feast, a historical market, demonstrations of Renaissance crafts, contemporary and Renaissance musical entertainment, and medieval games, military exercises, and dances. The festival takes its name from the five-petalled rose found on the coat of arms of the Rosenbergs, the noble family that lived in the castle during the late medieval and Renaissance periods.
