Summary/Abstract: This article follows the formation of governing structures (on a national and local level) that are to administer organized amateur art activity [samodeynost, самодейност] before establishing the Peoples’ Art Central Home in 1954. Following the administrative documents and publications there are two events that develop over time: 1. “Subors” (old country traditional fairs, holidays, church/religion related traditions that undergo changes because of the rigid ideological frame) and 2) “all-nation” holidays organized by the government, surveyed here as a deliberate step to supersede the traditional holidays with new, “socialist” ones. In this article a special emphasis is given to the various repertoire lines in the amateur activity for the mentioned historical period, and to the special attention shown by the government to the policy related in one way or another to folklore (“amateur activity” and “folklore” become equivalent as “peoples’ art”), attention is also given to Bulgarian folklorists’ attitude with respect to these processes.
