All visitors of the festival will be treated to Belarusian tributaries, Cossack kulesh, Bukhara pilaf, Ukrainian borsch with donuts, Chuvash shurpa, Russian pancakes, fish pies and many others." quoted in the message the words of the acting head of the agency for internal policy of the Kamchatka Territory Viktor Makhini.

14 national farmsteads will be located in a clearing in the center of the regional capital.

Everyone will be able to take part in master classes on making souvenirs, sewing national clothes, and dressing skins. The Cossack village courtyard will be fenced off with a specially made wattle fence. A fragment of a Cossack house will be installed on its territory, an exhibition of national clothes and traditional weapons will be organized.
