Heretoba is an annual one-day festival held usually at the end of September or beginning of October. The name of the festival comes from the medieval Hereti Kingdom, which emerged in eastern Caucasus between years 893 and 1020. The main goal of the festival is to introduce Georgian traditions and culture to visitors. During the festival day you can watch Georgian traditional dances, listen to Georgian music, taste local fruit, vegetables, wine and other products.
