Ask any Armenian—herbs are essential to any meal.

The HayBuis Festival, translated as “Armenian Herb,” celebrates these special ingredients and the traditional knowledge used to forage and prepare them.

The Festival is held in one of the most picturesque places of Armenia - the Apaga resort located in Yenokavan, Tavush region, an area known for its beautiful forests and mountains.
