The sweetest ethno-cultural event in Slovenia, the Cherry Festival in the Brda region, will be even more special this year as it celebrates its 50th anniversary! The event is full of ethnological, cultural and sports entertainment, gastronomic specialties and fun for all ages. This year the festival has been expanded to cover three weekends at various locations around Brda, the land of romantic wine hills in the west of Slovenia. Celebrate the Cherry Festival at the weekends in June!

Brda, the land of invigorating moments, offers countless opportunities for enjoying active holidays. Of course they are best enjoyed hand in hand with world class wines, fine cuisine and socialising with the hospitable locals, who are always ready to toast the good life in one of their fantastic wine cellars or farmsteads. Visit the area at the time of the Cherry Festival for three weekends in June. At that time Brda puts on its roundest, reddest face and celebrates the sweet cherries:

* 4th and 5th June – numerous local winemakers open the doors to their wine cellars

* 11th and 12th June – the main weekend emphasises the importance of the 50th anniversary and the festival in general. The medieval village of Šmartno will be full of ethnological themes. Dobrovo village will be dedicated to enogastronomy. Don`t miss the traditional parade on Sunday.

* 18th June – the final weekend will be entirely devoted to the fifth Briška poroka (the Brda wedding).

All young couples can also visit the Wedding Fair which will be held in Šmartno!
