Important events in Slovenia in 2019

There are plenty of reasons for you to visit Slovenia in 2019 – from the dynamic landscape with numerous active adventures to rich cultural heritage and fine cuisine. There will also be many events, so here are a few tips on which sports events, cultural anniversaries, concerts and events in Slovenia you should not miss.



Travel around Slovenia and discover diverse festivals. Slovenia is a land of festivals, as nearly every major town can boast at least one. You will be pleased to hear that these festivals cater to various tastes and are affordable for everyone. They also provide inspiration and great experiences.


Music festivals

Genre diversity, affordability, artistic quality, and star status are just some of the terms to describe Slovenian music festivals where, if you are in luck, you can get an autograph from your favourite celebrity.


Performance and visual arts

Socially critical, competitive, fun, childishly mischievous – at festivals of theatre, dance, and performing arts, you can enjoy the latest Slovenian and international productions. At the same time, you can visit special locations, such as streets in old town centres, castles, and old power plants.


Special festivals

Discover special Slovenian features and find various festivals. Festivals focus on wine, beer, or cuisine, shopping, lace, the mischief of Pippi Longstocking, or wearing scary masks – whatever it may be, these festivals always combine socialising and cultural activities.


Music and dance

You will always hit it off with Slovenians if you join them when they are listening to music or if you dance with them. Lovers of music should experience the diverse offerings of classical and contemporary music and dance in Slovenia.


Theatre and film

Spend summer evenings under the stars in the company of stars: in streets, squares, and parks that transform into outdoor cinemas and theatres. The rich cultural offerings continue throughout the year, with over 200 premières taking place. One of the most highly anticipated events is the LIFFE Film Festival in November, which changes Ljubljana into an international motion picture hub for two weeks.
