The Department of Tourism and Local Economic Development of Municipality of Ohrid in cooperation with Agrinet from Albania are continuing the tradition of organizing the two day festival of wine and cheese. Local producers of wine and cheese operating mainly in the rural areas of the Prespa cross-border region will exhibit their traditional products. This year, for the first time, wineries and tourism stakeholders from the TIkvesh region will participate on the event.
Despite the rich cultural and entertainment program, the festival provides the possibility for the region “Prespa” to advertise its tourist attractions, focusing on local food production. The event will be held during the evenings on 21 and 22 August 2015 at the small square at the Chinar Tree in Ohrid.
This activity is supported by the European Union funded project ”Fostering regional cooperation and balanced territorial development of Western Balkan countries in the process towards EU integration” implemented by the SWG.
