Best Fairs And Festivals In Croatia

Croatia has a unique and varied culture which it loves to celebrate!

Fairs and festivals in Croatia are very popular all year round.

If you’re thinking of going for a relaxing city break soon, here are some events taking place in Croatia this autumn and winter that might interest you:

Truffle Festival in Istria

This is a 7-week long festival that takes place in several towns throughout Istria, presenting this region’s best gastro offer: truffles.

Okay, and wine and olives to go with it.

Istria can easily be reached from Zagreb; you can even join one of our guided 2 days tours to get there.

This year, the festival begins on the 20th of September.

The Marunada – Chestnut Festival in Istria

Another Festival in Istria, mostly taking place around the city of Lovran, is devoted to chestnuts.

It is all about tasting chestnut delicacies and liquors, followed by many interesting musical, cultural and sports events. The Marunada starts in October.

Zagreb Film Festival

The 13th Zagreb Film Festival will open its doors on the 14th November this year, and will last for a week.

From its beginnings this Festival has been focused on the promotion of debut films and new filmmakers, both Croatian and international.

The main festival competition has so far included directors like Anton Corbijn, Steve McQueen, Radu Jude, Alexandros Avranas, even George Clooney.

Not a bad reason to visit Zagreb in November, isn’t it?
