Entertainment this year will be provided by Željko Bebek on Saturday 20 October and Petar Grašo on Sunday 21 October.

The Guinness record for the biggest pršut was set at the 10th International Pršut Fair in Tinjan in 2016 when a 22.5 kg pršut from the famous pršut-producing inland Dalmatian town of Drniš stole the show.

The record pršut, which was over one metre long, had to be carried in by two men to the festival as it was placed on a special custom-made holder.


Homemade Istrian pršut has been considered and recognized as a symbol of perfection, the Istrian people call it vijulin, meaning violin.

It has earned its royal status due to its taste, smell, colour, the right softness and freshness. Its prestigious position is owned to strict, traditional rules producers follow.
