Festival Lent is a festival backed by three decades of knowledge and experience that we use to develop a unique and recognizable festival programme formula, which is not a carbon copy of the patterns used by commercially-oriented festivals that target a narrow group of visitors, but rather a well-thought out mixture of diversity, openness, inclusion and a sense of connection.
It is a festival whose multi-layered fusion of culture, art, music, theatre, fine cuisine and socializing successfully appeals to audiences of all ages and tastes. It is a festival of all generations,where the young and old alike can find something to their liking.
It is a festival that brings art and culture from closed venues out into the open, onto city streets and squares, and thereby successfully follows its mission: making cultural events accessible for the broadest possible audience.
It is a festival that does not leave families behind, providing a broad range of quality performances and a much needed opportunity to spend quality family time together.
It is a festival that gives visitors of our cityan opportunity to discover the lively pulse of the most popular city squares and streets, and allows the people of Maribor to discover its hidden and oft overlooked hideouts that are given new life through Festival Lent.
It is a festival in the city and for the city; open to various ideas and visions, the festival accepts and unites all who wish to contribute to improving the quality of life in our city. It connects agents behind the city’s cultural and tourist offering, so that they can join forces and develop a comprehensive and successful tourism product, which would place the city firmly on the map of the best tourist destinations, all while securing sustainable and positive commercial impact for all of those who work and live in the city.
