The fair with a tradition of several centuries is held each spring on the second weekend of June, on the banks of the Crişul Repede river, in Negreni. The village lies on E60 road, almost halfway between Oradea and Cluj, 30 km from Sâncraiu. The date marks the beginning of mowing the hay, hence the name Mowers Fair. The fair consists of two parts: one resembles the general market, as known in Romania, they sell clothes, shoes, and other new items. The other part is antique lovers’ heaven, anyone can find a treasure in the wide variety of folk costumes, books, furniture, tools, painting, items designed from home weaved fabric, old tiles, etc. One could spend days wandering around this part of the market.
