The Festival of the Star marks the inauguration of the gadda rules, and the first bardria. For centuries, on July 12 each year, gadda travel from all over to the town of Sclossin to partake in a festival. During the day there are stalls and games and at night, a concert. Those gadda who cannot attend are sent a present to mark the occasion. It is the most important day on the gadda calendar.
