On 8 October 2019 the Minsk Region Executive Committee opened a historical documentary exhibition “Harvest Festival” timed to the regional holiday of village workers “Dozhinki-2019” in the city of Borisov. The exhibition has been prepared by the State Archives of Minsk Region.

The culture of the Belarusian people is closely connected with the land. Many holidays, rites and traditions take root in the events of the land calendar. The Dozhinki feast is probably the most popular of such holidays dedicated to the gathered harvest, crop productivity and family welfare. By this time all field works are nearing the end of the harvest crops and flax picking.

The Dozhinki Festival has always been an important event in Belarus celebrated with beautiful rites. From 1996 the feast was celebrated annually in different district towns as the national festival-fair of village workers. Since 2014 the feast has been organized in one of the district centres by each administrative province independently.

The exhibition shows documents describing the Harvest Festival beginning from 1924, the First All-Belarus Agricultural Exhibition in 1930, the Fourth Minsk Region Agricultural Exhibition and more. Of special interest are the Winner Diploma issued at the Harvest Festival in 1925 and photos of the agricultural equipment from the 1950s available from the State Archives of Minsk Region.

The website of the Minsk Region Executive Committee posts an exhibition of electronic documents “DOZHINKI: INSIGHT INTO TIME. HARVEST FESTIVAL. ELECTRONIC EXHIBITION” (In Russian)
