Knitting is an old traditional trade in Rasskazovo. Local knitted products are considered to be a symbol of the town, that’s why citizens celebrate the Sock Festival. Socks are going to be honored in a big way.
Thanks to Rasskazovo craftsmen who keep their family secrets and knitting techniques carefully, the festival guests will have a great opportunity to learn a few secrets firsthand. At the festival master-classes, you will know about the traditions of the knitting patterns and try your hand in knitting with a fork and yourself as a weaver or a spinner.
One of the main locations of the festival is fair. Here everyone will find socks to their liking, as well as shawls, mittens, scarfs and sweaters both hand-made and machine knitted. At the food court, you can taste and buy products of local producers.
