Birthday is only once a year and Tbilisi is no exception. We don’t know for sure on which day and month the King Vakhtang Gorgasali found his falcon in a hot spring, and decided to built a city in that place. It is just happened so that the birthday of Georgian capital is celebrated on one of October weekends. Harvest time is almost over, the weather is still warm, and the nature is dressing up in versatile colors... That’s what one needs to be in festive mood!
What to expect from Tbilisoba fest? Plenty of fruits, vegetables, cheeses, newly made Georgian grape-based desserts – churchkhela and pelamushi, steamy khinkali, barbecue and bread, and wine of course. Fantastic compositions made of autumn fruits, variety of beautiful handicraft masterpieces, theatrical performances and scenes from Georgia historical past, folk music and dance performances, gala concert and fireworks in the sky under Tbilisi is what make this holiday so special.
What do you have to bring to Tbilisoba? Take a fully charged camera and an ample empty bag for impressions. Come with an open heart. Tbilisi is a city that loves you and is always happy to welcome you. Especially on its birthday!
