Summary/Abstract: The text establishes parallels between the cultural pattern of urban festivities and modern media. Based on field work carried out in 2015–2017 in different Bulgarian cities, it tries to systematize the inter-relation between festive events and media –informing, sharing, re-interpreting, appropriating, parodying. The focus is on the way in which festive events are transformed into platforms for disseminating messages of various kinds – political or artistic, community or market oriented. In such a way urban festivities are instrumentalized, becoming a kind of new form of public media.
