The Festival is after the initiative of the Varna Municipality and Association “Bulgar Folklore Fest”, and later in partnership with the Association of the Choreographers – Varna and the Palace of Culture and Sports. After 2000 the organizers were joined by the Varna Free University “Chernorizets Hrabar” and the Shumen University – Varna Faculties.

In the period 1995 – 1999 there participated as a special guest-performer one Bulgarian professional ensemble. Accompanying events were also organized – discussions, practical scientific conferences and short courses for studying and practicing folklore dances and rituals.
