The Brass Bands Meeting

In each August or September the "Z˙g a fenyves" festival is organized in Praid. This is a good opportunity to play music together. Brass bands from everywhere come to Praid (mostly from Harghita and the neighboring counties), adult and also children bands, dressed in beautiful uniforms and carrying shiny musical instruments.

During the years the Brass Bands Meeting grew into a popular feast.

The Meeting has a more than 25 years tradition. Bands come also from Mure║ county and Covasna county; more than 10 bands entertained with processions and music the numerous crowd.

The Meeting is organized by the Local Council of Praid and the brass band of Praid.

The brass band of Praid performed exceedingly not only in inland but also in international competitions (in Luxemburg and Hungary). In 1998 the band celebrated 100 years existence; this proves the tradition of the genre in Praid.
