The Carnival of Vevchani

Every year on January 13-14 a masked carnival is held in the village of Vevchani to the north of Struga. The carnival is an Orthodox celebration of the New Year's Eve (according to the old Julian calendar) highlighted by a mask procession of local groups. Precisely, the carnival is held in honor of the great Christian holiday “St. Vasilij” (St. Basil) commonly known as Vasilitsa that marks the beggining of the new year (January 14) according to the Julian calendar. At the same time the carnival highlights the fact that some pagan rituals are still marking the cultural living of the local population. Young people dressed in ritual clothing and with masks on their faces, perform old magic rituals and blessings in order to have good health and good harvest througout the year.
