November Gourmet Ljubljana

November in Ljubljana is something that your taste buds will remember! Get ready for the November Gourmet Ljubljana Festival! 

November Gourmet Ljubljana

It has now become almost traditional that November in Ljubljana is reserved for gastronomy. A series of gastronomy-related events will form the November Gourmet Ljubljana festival, taking place between 2 and 30 November. The highlight will be the November Gourmet Finale on Friday, 22 November, at City of Design. This event will bring together top Ljubljana chefs, gastronomic connoisseurs and culinary enthusiasts.

During the festival month, the Taste Ljubljana Culinary Tour, the Ljubljana Wine Experience, and the Beer Lover's Experience of Ljubljana organized by Ljubljana Tourism will be complementing the event programme.

You can soak in the atmosphere of this culinary-themed November in selected restaurants offering the November Gourmet menu with locally-sourced dishes, typical of the season around the Feast of St. Martin, and great wines from Slovene winemakers.

You can also order a genuine Ljubljana-style breakfast at many Ljubljana restaurants this month, or treat yourself to a Ljubljana-style Sunday lunch at the Švicarija Creative Centre in Tivoli Park. Visit the Locally Grown Food Exchange and get to know local producers and growers, attend the Little Wine School with top wine expert Mira Šemić to learn more about wine tasting, and discover new trends in the world of craft beer during Ljubljana Craft Beer Week. 

November Gourmet will also include a Saint Martin’s Day celebration in the centre of Ljubljana with a special autumn edition of the Ljubljana Wine Route. The annual Hospitality and Tourism Convention takes place at the Grand Hotel Union from 11 to 13 November, while the Slovenian Wine Festival takes place at Cankarjev Dom on 14 and 15 November.
