Mesir Macunu Festival

The Mesir Macunu Festival is a festival with a wide participation in various traditional practices in the Manisa provincial center which has existed for 500 years.

The festival is known and accepted in Turkey, based on a historical story about sharing a medical food that accepts mesa paste. The festival activities begin with "baking" and "baking" of mesir paste. The putty, cured of healing wishes, is distributed among the people through the minarets and dome of the Sultan Mosque.

Thousands of people from different regions of Turkey, will compete with each other in the air to catch up without falling pasted pastes.
