The Golden Stag Festival (Romanian: Cerbul de Aur) is the most popular Romanian song contest and awards, held annually in the town of Braşov, Romania.

The Golden Stag was first held in 1968, but after 1971 it was banned by the Communist leadership. After the fall of Communism, new editions were organised starting from 1992. Between 2010 and 2017 the festival wasn't held due to lack of funds. It returned in 2018.[1]

The festival takes place during the summer. The editions of the Festival have been broadcast live by the Romanian TV station TVR1.
