The summer festival in Zajezova has been taking place since 2007. Indirectly, it is a continuation of a tradition that had emerged a couple of years before when some locals prepared weddings to which they invited dozens of friends, and also the summer solstice gatherings of Zajezova locals and their friends.
In 2006 a European-wide gathering of over 500 young activists – Ecotopia – took place in Zajezova. This event, together with Rainbow family gatherings that several inhabitants of Zajezova take part in, have become inspirations the summer festival in Zajezova.
Initially the festival had been organized by Peter Banas and Mirec Kasiak of PHZ and the inhabitants of Sekier, however gradually more and more people get involved and nowadays about 50 locals are part of the prep team.
Any festival profits are used for non-commercial uses, like the renovation of the community centre in Zajezova, the development of the Eco-community in Sekier and such.
