by May 2, 2017 General

The Ethnoaul will be organized on the basis of the Kazanat hippodrome and will occupy the territory of 47 hectares. This was reported by Minister of Culture and Sport Arystanbek Mukhamediuly at the press conference following the Government meeting.

I am sure the Ethnoaul will interest 90 percent of EXPO-2017 visitors and will be second in attendance after the exhibition pavilions, � the Minister noted.

The unique exposition will include the already operating race track, which will hold national sports competitions, such as kokpar, aldaraspak, tenge ilu, kiz kuu, baige, kokshar koteru and zhamby atu. It will also host National sports competitions, such as the President’s International Wrestling Cup and the Kokpar World Cup.

An artisan’s village will be recreated for the visitors to see firsthand how objects of arts and crafts are made. Gourmets and connoisseurs of authenticity will have an opportunity to taste dishes of Kazakh national cuisine.

A special place will be given to the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan, whose ethno-cultural associations will present ethnography, traditions and the history of the Kazakh people to guests. As A. Mukhamediuly noted, the Ethnoaul, which is scheduled for presentation on June 1, will be free-to-enter.
