10 days Krushevo Republic
Every year, from the 1st to the 10th of August, a number of cultural, scientific and entertainment events are held in the city.
The "10 days of the Krushevo republic" festival is organized to celebrate the anniversary of the Ilinden in 1903 and 1944. The goal of these events is to reaffirm the struggle for national liberation and independence of Macedonia. The event is officially opened on the 2nd of August with lifting the flag of the Republic and reading of the "Krushevo manifest", which was a call to arms from the rebels to the people of Macedonia. The central procession takes place on Meckin Kamen, where speeches are held by the high officials, in the presence of big audience and international guests. Significant events that take place during this festival are numerous folklore dance performances by Macedonia's best folk dance groups, as well as number of concert performances (ethno music) and art exhibitions.
