19. KRAKOW MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL. Come December 4-5, 2021!
Sport climbing, bouldering and mountains. Ski mountaineering and freeride. Sports, travel, exploration and mountain culture. Films, lectures, workshops, awards. In a word, the traditional mountain summary of the past 12 months, which will be on this year’s 19. unveiled. Welcome to the KFG!
If the pandemic situation allows, the Krakow Mountain Festival will be held in the traditional formula on the weekend of December 4-5. At the same time, an online platform will be available for the entire month (December 1-31). As announced by the KFG organizers:
This will be another event we are preparing in a pandemic reality. However, we hope to prepare an interesting and safe festival this time as well. The upcoming edition will be implemented in a hybrid formula – traditional audience participation events will be enhanced by the online platform, which was warmly received by audiences last year.

A friendly and modern space for the festival in its traditional formula will be provided by the ICE Krakow Congress Center. Here there will be film screenings, lectures by invited guests and training workshops on various areas of mountain activities. The equipment fair will also return to KFG this year – thanks to the spacious interiors of the Congress Center, bigger than ever.
