From the creators of BOHEMIAN FESTIVAL 2013 & GYPSY TABOR 2012


The Bohemian Festival is known for bringing together a diverse palette of live music, globally renown musicians and DJs, dancers, performers and more. The festival will take place September 29th – October 2nd, 2016 at various location in New York City.


Since the late 1990s, Mehanata, (Bulgarian for “tavern”) has been acknowledged as Ground Zero for intercultural  dance parties in Manhattan, attracting people from dozens of nationalities living in and visiting New York City,  who come ready to partake in the most unique continuous celebration on the East Coast…

The free spirited celebratory culture and border-eliminating energy generated by its patrons has made for amazing nights of music, dance, and all festive chaos, centered around and inspired by global Gypsy/Roma, Balkan, and world music.

Mehanata helped produce the first-ever NY Gypsy Festival in 2005, and went on to cultivate a variety of festivals and celebrations throughout the years, including Roma film festivals and hyper-festive cultural events.

  1. HI,

    I found you on a search for Bohemian Festivals. My family owns Little Bohemia Tavern in Traverse City, MI. Little Bohemia is the 2nd Oldest Tavern in Traverse City; Est. 1932, and my family has owned it since 1969; we are the 2nd owners. Our are has a lot of folks of Bohemian decent and we are looking to start an Annual Bohemian Festival and I was hoping that you might provide some ideas for a successful festival. We want to do a two days festival with food, music, and activities. I can be reached at 231.946.6925 or on email, Nancy@LilBo.com

    I appreciate your time and any input you might provide.
