About the Festival

The theme of Moscow’s main harvest festival this year will be innovations in Russian agriculture. From October 4 to 13, visitors of the culinary event will see how smart technologies can contribute to food production, how big data helps forecast agricultural yields, and how robots monitor the health of the fields.

At the festival venues, you’ll be able to buy the best Russian farm products, sample dishes from a special seasonal menu, acquaint yourself with the traditional cuisine of various Russian regions, attend free folk concerts, and even travel back in time with historical reenactment enthusiasts!

For example, on Svyatoozerskaya Street you can visit a settlement inhabited by the Dyakovo people, who once lived in the Moscow, Tver, Vladimir, and Smolensk Regions from the 5th century BC to the 7th century AD. On Gorodetskaya Street, you can attend costume balls in the spirit of the Middle Ages in Europe; on Matveevskaya Street, you’ll find yourself in a Mediterranean port town during the 19th century; and, in Zelenograd, residents and visitors can meet Streltsy soldiers, scribes, cooks, and musicians from the time of the second tsar of the Romanov Dynasty, Aleksey I.
