Thanks to the activity of researchers and promoters of the art of Zalipie, every year we can enjoy a competition for the most beautifully painted cottage.
The “Malowana Chata” (“Painted Cottage”) competition is organised by the District Museum in Tarnów and the House of Painters in Zalipie and is the longest-running folk art competition in Poland. The competition jury visits the painted cottages during the 2 weekend days following Corpus Christi Day and announces the final results on Sunday. It is a great celebration in Zalipie, which culminates in the so-called “Zalipie Festival”, organised by the House of Painters.
