The festival conception of 6Fest is based on the carnival and humour brand of Gabrovo, also known as the Capital of Humour and Satire. The Carnival of Gabrovo has root in festive events since the 19th century and has developed in its contemporary version since 1960s. 6Fest is a logical sequel of the carnival brand of Gabrovo and the main goal of 6Fest is to develop Gabrovo as a festival and carnival destination through outdoor art events, performances, etc.

The name of the festival 6Fest (in Bulgarian should be pronounced like “ShestFest”) comes from the name of the oldest quarter of Gabrovo city, the heart and the birth place of Gabrovo – Shesti uchastak quarter, translated in English as the 6th section (sector, station). This is the place on the right side of Yantra river, in the very center of nowadays Gabrovo.
