Each Daghestan region presented their products by their masters at the makeshift fair sites. Here, guests could clearly see the simple elegance and Sulivkent and Balkhar pottery, the grace of Untsukul notching, and the variety of multicolored carpets fr om South Daghestan.

Each fair site attracted lots of spectators. Craftsmen gladly showed the manufacturing process enthralling the guests. Artists from local theaters also set up their sites accompanying the festivity with singing and dancing.
