Festival Lent is much more than just a set of events offered in the beginning of summer. It brings together 4 concurrent festivals, each giving its visitors unique and unforgettable experiences. It is no real wonder that Festival Lent is the county's largest festival! Everything from folk art to jazz music, street theatre to creativity, and so much more, is combined within this festival of festivals.
- FOLKART, THE INTERNATIONAL FOLKLORE FESTIVAL, one of the most prominent and renowned folklore festivals in Europe and worldwide;
- JAZZLENT AND JAZZ PODIUM, priding with popular foreign and Slovenian jazz and jazz-related style musicians;
- STREET THEATRE ANA DESETNICA, a playful street theatre festival, reviving the city streets and squares;
- ART CAMP, providingthe most popular daily events of the festival for younger generations and families in the city park, boosting with creativity, culture, recreation, mingling and simply feeling “yay-okay”!
The largest multicultural and multi-genre summer festival in this part of Europe is much more than just another summer festival. It is an experience in culture, get-together, enjoying the known and discovering the new. An experience in hospitality and fine cuisine. An experience of a lively, open and friendly town that invites you to take in its squares and streets for nine days and nights of pure festival magic. A festival that shares the love with those who love it with each event, offering a colourful programme of diverse and carefully selected experiences and plenty of opportunities for memories that will last a lifetime.
Festival Lent is based on much more than just big names and sold-out concert halls. It wants to offer visitors more than just a short escape from the mundane realities of everyday life. We believe that meeting and hanging out with people in a lively, friendly town and spending quality time with friends and family is the added value of Festival Lent we seem to forget all too often.
This is why Festival Lent wishes to encourage and connect each and every one who can in any way contribute to improving the quality of life in our town by bringing a diverse and well-rounded programme of cultural, culinary, and other experiences.
The Festival Lent team remains true to their mission: allow the broadest possible audience to visit the best quality events and bring art and culture from closed halls out in the open, to town streets and squares.
