ZAGREB, Aug 9 (Hina) – The Cest is d’Best international street festival will this year be held from August 19 to 23, and its 24th edition will offer hundreds of hours of programmes featuring various musicians, performers and artists.
Cest is d’Best is the oldest and biggest street festival in Croatia, taking place in Zagreb since 1997, and in the last dozen years it has greatly expanded its programme and become an important international festival as well, the organisers have said.
This year’s partner country is India, so a part of its culture will be presented at the very beginning of the Cest is d’Best festival, on Wednesday, August 19.
There will be art, ecology and educational workshop for the youngest visitors, while all visitors will be able to learn basic circus skills, such as juggling, hooping, tightrope walking and aerial silk dancing.
Theatre, puppet and circus performances will be organised for children, and all visitors will have access to sports equipment for recreation and entertainment on the grass.
Attending the festival this year will be about ten artists from abroad and around a hundred local musicians, painters and performers.
This year a race for dogs and their owners will again take place as well as a garbage men race.
The organisers have underscored that there will be an interesting selection of food, with an emphasis on healthy food.
