The free event takes place in the historic center of Wrocław, Poland (formerly Breslau) – a city which has taken on the title of „Wroclaw Guitar City” – a title that seems merited. In fact, the Mayor, Rafał Dutkiewicz, was among those guitar players who established the current record. Festival founder and director, Leszek Cichoński, is a well-known musician and music educator in Poland and the festival was an outgrowth of one of his educational programs and has taken place – and grown – annually since 2003. One of the objectives of the organizers is to establish May 1st as „World Guitar Day” and more coordinated simultaneous events are planned for next year and beyond (the date was moved this year due to the Beatification of Pope John Paul II taking place on May 1 this year).
