INTERNATIONAL ISTANBUL-BÜYÜKÇEKMECE CULTURE AND
ART FESTIVAL “ART MEETS LOVE, CULTURES MEET FRIENDSHIP.”

Just as how folklore is life itself with a past as long as the history of mankind, so does the history of culture and art begin alongside the history of mankind.
To break from the values whose roots reach to the start of mankind, to break from cultural and artistic values, is to break from life itself. With this understanding, we’ve brought the world’s culture and art to Istanbul residents in Büyükçekmece for 25 years, while contributing heavily to the promotion of our city and nation. The International Istanbul-Büyükçekmece Culture and Art Festival is a member of CIOFF (International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Arts) under UNESCO, and is one of the first festivals in the A category. Our festival has been selected World’s Best Festival 7 times by international review organizations. To this day, over 110.000 culture and art envoys have been a part of the 24 festivals we’ve organized, and these artists had the opportunity to get to know our nation, people and culture.
