On October 17 and 18, the streets of Old Tbilisi will come alive in the 35th annual Tbilisoba Festival, which was named in honour of Georgia’s capital city Tbilisi.
The event is marked as a public holiday in Georgia and the occasion will feature a number of events on the streets of Tbilisi.
However this year a number of changes are being made to the Festival’s program, compiled by Tbilisi City Hall.
The winner of a public competition to rejuvenate the Festival has been revealed, and her ideas will see more cultural events be part of the Festival, not just drinking in the streets. First place winner Nino Lelashvili will have her ideas featured in this year’s Festival after she was chosen by the Tbilisi City Hall commission and online voting. By winning the top prize she also received 14,000 GEL.
