The Pomegranate Festival
Goychay is, so to say, the capital of pomegranates in Azerbaijan.
Every autumn this city warmly welcomes numerous guests and participants of the Pomegranate Festival, which is the most interesting and joyful event in the area.
People are very eager to come to the Pomegranate Festival, and not only from across the country, but also from the neighboring and distant lands. The Azerbaijan can proudly say that the Pomegranate Festival became international years ago. During the Festival every gardener or pomegranate farmer tries to surprise guests in his own way.
Someone treats the guests with pomegranate jam, another one treats them with baked slices of pomegranates, and some even tell fortunes using pomegranates. As a rule, they wish the guests prosperity and success.
