OLUKLACI SPRING FESTIVAL

Spring Festival is held every year during the second week of May at the Oluklacı Region, close to Eğirdir town. The festival site has a fantastic view of the countryside and the Eğirdir lake due to its 1.150 Mt. elevation.

Turkish ancestors frequently visited Oluklucı Plato to worship in a natural environment, they even built a mosque in the plateau for that purpose surrounded by majestic oak trees.The present trees in Oluklucı are the roots of such centuries-old oaks that felled or re-formed since they were cut in the winter of 1911. That year was so cold that the ice of the lake did not melt for a hundred days.

Since there was no fuel, the oaks and even tars in the grove were cut and used for the survival of Eğirdir's people.
