Summary/Abstract: It is made an attempt in this paper to trace some changes in the ritual-festive system in the modern period. First is examined its inner structure and then the factors, influencing its stabilization or respectively its changeability, are analysed. The modern ritual-festive system is characterised by a gradual establishment of a common mode! on the basis of contemporary traditional folk Bulgarian culture. The consolidation in the area of festive rituals continues nowadays, and a special significance for this process belongs to the innovations, to new elements due either to institutional interference, or to the unification of traditional folk culture. This process is concided by the opposite tendency to local distinction, the preservance of local variants of the feasts, the demonstration and preservation of original tradition, the declination of the ideological components, imposed in the totalitarian period. The changes are parallel to the ethnocultural Renaissance in ail developed countries, and to the process of democratisation, taking place in all East-European countries.
