The Dried Plum Day has been held annually since 2001. The aim of the event is to promote dried plum as a regional product and to popularise the tourist and landscape values of the Iwkowa Commune. The commune is famous for ‘susorki iwkowskie’ – a local fruit mixture characterised by unique flavour and aroma. The fruit drying plants are located in Dobrociesz, Kąty, Wojakowa and Drużkowo Puste. These places are also a part of the Dried Plum Route – an unusual way of presenting the sightseeing values of the commune and promoting the regional product.
The event will begin with a Holy Mass in the church in Kąty. During the Dried Plum Day at the stadium of KS Olimpia Kąty, you can also watch an ecological performance ‘Paradise Island’ as a part of the Ecochildren in an Ecocommune project and a performance of the magician Mr “Li”, and, finally, enjoy yourself during a dance party with the Summer Band. Children will have a good time at the funfair, and tasty food, a stand with dried fruit and regional products and a prize draw will be available to everyone. On that day, you will also have an opportunity to sightsee traditional fruit drying plants in a special “Plum Bus”.
