The tradition of playing the trumpet has a very long tradition in the valley of the three Timoks. Knjaževac bleh orchestras are widely known, and their talent and skills have brought them numerous awards at the largest national trumpet competition in Guča, as well as at competitions and performances abroad. The event “Trumpets from Timok” promotes the human potential of the municipality of Knjaževac.

It is held on the modern plateau of the Cultural Center, under the linden trees, on the right bank of Svrljiški Timok. It includes a series of events, a rich and varied musical program. The central part of the event is the performance of the brass band from Knjaževac. A pleasant summer afternoon and evening, sunset on the banks of Timok, cheerful sounds of trumpets make this event extraordinary. This is definitely something to experience.
