History of MayFest

MayFest (MaiFest, Hıdırellez, Maypole) are festivals in different cultures, celebrated between late April and early May, symbolizing the awakening of nature.
  • In celebrations known as Maifest in Germany, cities and villages are decorated with colorful cloths and flowers. In some areas, bonfires are lit and competitions are organized in which the May king and the queen are selected. Maibaum (May poles) are erected on the marketplaces and local people dance around these poles. One of the Maibaum traditions is the May tree with ribbons and colorful cloths. This tradition shows similarities with the wish tree in “Hıdırellez” in Turkic nations. [2]
  • In some countries where the Germanic culture is influential, there are similar May celebrations. Similar to Maibaum people dance around a ribbon-tied pole called MayPole in Sweden and Scotland and Wales in the UK. [3]
  • May 6th is known as “Hıdırellez” in Turkey and Turkic nations and the day is celebrated as the beginning of the summer after the winter season which starts on November 8. This festival corresponds to April 23rd on Rumi calendar, which was used in the Ottoman period. Similar days between April 23 and May 6 are celebrated as St. Georges Day by Catholic Christians and Aya Yorgi by Orthodox Christians. [4]
  • May 1st Labor Day is celebrated as an official holiday in many countries. In Russia, May 1st till 5th is celebrated as International Workers’ Day.
