The Pechun Bazaar (Hay Bazaar) festival was first held in April 2013 and was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the death of the Tatar poet Gabdulla Tukai. The aim of the festival was to recreate the atmosphere of the early 20th century – the time when Tukai lived and worked. A fair was opened near the walls of the Nurullah mosque right on the street. The place was not chosen by chance – the Sennoy Bazaar served not only as a place for selling various goods, but also as a place where the Tatars of Kazan met and communicated with each other, learned and reported news, i.e. The Hay Bazaar was the center of the cultural and social life of the Tatars of Kazan.
