A celebration of Slavonian culture, lifestyle & traditions.
A chance to celebrate all things Slavonian at the 53rd Vinkovci Autumn Festival (Vinkovačke Jeseni) which will take place this year from 7-16 September 2018 in the eastern Croatian town of Vinkovci.
The annual Vinkovci Autumn festival, which is over 50 years old now, marks the start of autumn, a season that Slavonians reap a lot of rewards for their hard work during the year.
Vinkovci Autumn festival is a celebration of the Slavonian lifestyle, habits and culture and aims to give festival goers an insight into all things Slavonian – including food, dance, music, costume and dialects.
Over the 10 days, there will be a host of various cultural performances, including from kids groups, fashion shows, concerts, recitals, a chance to sample some traditional Slavonian cuisine and lots more.
The theme of this year’s festival is “Handful of Truth” with visitors being able over the festival to witness seven truths that discuss the problems and life situations of Šokaci and Šokica from the end of the 19th century.
Lovers of Slavonian traditional culture and folklore, either original or choreographed, can enjoy it from 7-12 September during the County Folklore Festival, and for the youngsters, from 8-9 September when the Vinkovci Children’s Autumn Festival is held.
