The fest focuses on educating the genearl public about the history of the Romani people whose history and heritage goes way back to India from where their migrations began around the 10th century, arriving in Europe in the late 14th century.  The Romani people were mistaken for being from Egypt by the Europeans from where the term "Gypsy" comes from.  There were many other myths and misbeliefs over the centuries that lead to severe persecutions of the Romani people including slavery in the Balkans and Nazi holocaust The Roma to the present day remain a deeply misunderstood community around the world. .
