Festivals in Armenia: Autumn 2022
Autumn in Armenia is the season when it is neither too hot nor too cold, when you can enjoy observing the leaves from the trees and plants changing into multi-colored works of art before finally falling away. The bare and vulnerable branches that are created reveal the true and beautiful scenery underneath.
As Albert Camus said: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Various interesting festivals - Voskehat Wine Fest, Gata Festival, Eco Fish Fest, Tea and Coffee Festival, Erebuni-Yerevan, etc. will pass during this magical period of the year.
“Erebuni-Yerevan” is the birthday of the capital of Armenia, which is celebrated every year in October.
