Ladies are also invited to join the old polish beads stringing competition with prizes. Artists wear kontusz, which are exact copies of those used in the 16th century.
These are dances and songs with elements of Chopin's music (mazurka, kujawiak, oberek) as well as folk customs and games which engage the audience to play together (chochoł devil).
