Description The fading of traditions of folk culture, their falling out of memory, and their preservation have been talked about for more than two centuries. From the first pioneers and people interested in folk culture, this thread leads up to the present, where it is connected not only to ethnologists and other scholars, but to artistic spheres and the general public. The paper deals with diverse aspects, which can be observed in connection with folk traditions and memory. The author follows statements, comments, and narrations of observers and bearers of folk culture in order to show the evolution of approaches to memory in the field of folk traditions. These include both a tie between memory and its bearers, and a reflection of folk traditions in general cultural memory. The development of research memory, which studies and interprets manifestations of folk culture, can be observed as well.
