The School Teachers' Festival was launched in 2010, in the Year of the Teacher. Then, for the first time, the state drew the attention of the general public to the problems of education, the discussion of the status and role of the teacher. A republican forum was organized at Elabuga Institute of KFU, the main participants of which were the best teachers of the country, ready to adopt and introduce innovations. The festival was conceived as the only platform in Russia and the first in the Republic of Tatarstan for mastering the advanced pedagogical experience of Russian teachers and foreign colleagues, as well as a platform for introducing the ideas of domestic and foreign scientists. Having proved its relevance, in 2011 the festival received the status of an All-Russian, and then international.
