The festival is part of the Cultural Events Calendar of Sofia Municipality. It has established itself as the only festival in Bulgaria about ancient music. It presents the European musical art through historically informed performance and instruments relevant to the era in which the works were created, and thus places Sofia among the hosts of such festivals - Barcelona, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Bucharest and others.

At its 9th edition, Piano Extravaganza Festival will present eight piano recitals, one chamber music concerts, one jazz concert, one music evening and “Open doors day” for adults and children. The extraordinary artists and the variety of the repertoire of the 12 events will satisfy even the most sophisticated connoisseurs.
The event has become a music festival with a distinct theme, which makes it unique in its character and program content.
The program of the event includes, along with the well-known masterpieces of classical music, works of similarly high quality, but rarely performed or by authors left undeservedly in the shadow of the most brilliant composers.

On November 21, the Church honors the greatest liturgical feast in autumn – the Presentation of Mary. The Entry of the Most Holy Theotokos into the Temple reminds us how Joachim and Anne brought their three-year-old daughter to the Temple in Jerusalem, how she was brought up to love God and how she acquired her virtues.
In Bulgaria, Orthodox Youth and Family Day is also on November 21. On this day, the whole family gathers and celebrates the feast. These two feasts send a beautiful message regarding Christian morals and the beauty in human relations.
