The Carnival of Ritual Processions – Children’s Masquerade Ball

As part of the Carnival of Ritual Processions, a children’s masquerade ball will be held for children aged 5 to 12 from cultural and artistic societies, preschools or primary schools and other organizations in Novi Sad and its surrounding area, in the Great Hall of the Novi Sad Fair on 10 March. The children, participants of the masquerade, will show the masquerading of the present with their costumes, in order to make a parallel between the ritual masquerading and the masquerading that has a fun character, and on that occasion, the best children’s costume will be chosen.

The Carnival of Ritual Processions consists of children’s masquerade ball, musical performances, panels and professional lectures, concerts of local and international groups, which will complete the Migrations programme with their colourful content.

As part of the Carnival, concerts will be held on 11 March in the Great Hall of the Novi Sad Fair as well. Carnival is a time reserved especially for celebrations and festivals. In the original meaning of the word, carnival referred to giving up the consumption of meat, release from troubles, the expulsion of winter and welcoming of spring.

In the multi-ethnic region of Vojvodina, various ethnic groups added their own mark to these processions. The local German population had a significant influence on the culture of masquerades, the performance of plays and forms of behaviour, as did other ethnicities that settled in areas where they came into close contact with traditional German culture. ‘The Carnival of Ritual Processions’ evokes age-old traditions from the local area, representing a meeting point of the region’s different cultures with partners from Serbia, Croatia, Hungary and Bulgaria.

Partner of the Migration of Souls programme is the Novi Sad Fair, and the companies Globos osiguranje and Dijamant DOO also provided support.
