Bukhara will host 16th Silk and Species, an annual food fair, on May 26-28, for local and foreign businessmen and specialists to exhibit their products.
Craftsmen will hold workshops and exhibit Uzbek trades, including rug weaving, pottery, and smithing.
The fair will also include national games: sheep and cockfights, ropewalking, and others.
The pilaf festival will bring together the best cooks from across the country to compete in the art of pilaf-making.
Kamolot, a public youth movement, and Khunarmand, the Craftsmen Association, plan to organise an atlas and adras fashion show by leading young designers.
The fair will include various concerts, among them a gala concert featuring famous and emerging artists.
