Tbilisoba 2018 to be celebrated in Moscow
Tbilisoba is an annual festival held on the last weekend of October but this year it takes place on the first weekend of October. The reason for that is presidential election that is due on the 28th of October.

This year Tbilisoba will be held in Moscow as well. The date is the same for both of the festivals – in Tbilisi it takes place on the 6th and 7th of October and
in Moscow on the 6th.
