The city of Korça, from the 10th to the 13th of August 2017, hosted the 11th edition of the “Beer Fest”. The Albanian American Development Foundation supported for the second year the organization of this event, which was situated in two different locations. The Old Bazaar of Korça, known widely as TID Korça, was one of the selected scenes. The old building with their traditional architectonic style and the Bazaar Square with its characteristic pave made the perfect frame for the amazing atmosphere of the “Beer Fest”. The Albanian beers, the tasty regional cousin and the good music played by national and international artists were the leitmotiv of the activity.
During the five days of the event the town was visited by more than 25,000 tourists daily. From them, nearly 5,000 visitors each day chose to party in the Old Bazaar.
The AADF supported the event financially and with human resources through the TID Korça association. Following the key role that AADF had in the revitalization of the Old Bazaar of Korça, the Foundation continues to be one of the major partners of the city through its development projects.
