The biggest cosmic mystery of the 20th century is the Tunguska phenomenon that happened in the territory of the Krasnoyarsk region. The giant fire-ball flew over the vast territory of Central Siberia early in the morning on June 30, 1908. Its flight ended with a powerful explosion in the air followed by the Taiga collapse between the rivers Kimchu and Khushmo. Eurasia literally shreaded. The seismic wave registered as far as Irkutsk, St. Petersburg, and Cambridge. That day a history of the Tunguska phenomenon began, and it is still an unsolved mystery dating back more than 100 years.
In June 2008 in the village of Vanavara the Evenk Museum of Local Lore presented an open-air exposition of the Tunguska meteorite dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the meteorite fall.
Ten years later in June 2018 the festival "Tungusskoye Divo" was created, which was dedicated to the 110th anniversary of the meteorite event and included a scientific conference with the participation of international scientists known for serious research of the Tunguska phenomenon.
The events of 110 years ago and relentless interest in the phenomenon of the Tunguska meteorite became an excellent opportunity to invite guests from all over the world to the village of Vanavara and present the culture of Evenkiya, one of the most picturesque places of the Krasnoyarsk region.
The festival "Tungusskoye Divo" is a celebration of cultural unity and exchange of cultural values. It is a three-day celebration that includes sports competitions, folk crafts exhibitions, concerts of creative groups of Evenkiya and the Krasnoyarsk region, including the ensemble "Sibirskaya Vechora" and the band "Yakhont".
